Sam Reyne and Ashleigh Bibby turned their lives around after losing an impressive nine stone combined by following the 1:1 Diet by Cambridge Weight Plan. The couple explained that before embarking on their weight loss journey, they had a turbulent relationship with food.
Sam admitted that she became aware of the negative impact weight was having on her health after it started hindering her transition.
She explained: “By the end of 2020 I began to come out to family, friends, and colleagues about transitioning.
“I started on hormones around this time, however, I was very conscious of the fact that fat produces oestrogen in the body, and as long as I was overweight, my figure would remain feminine.
“I wanted to have top surgery as part of my transition. The surgery shows that you achieve better results with a lower fat percentage, and so the heavier you are, the riskier the surgery.

“The thought of dieting seemed awful, as eating a strict diet never seemed to work for me in the past.”
Ashleigh had also struggled with body image issues as a result of her weight and at her heaviest, she weighed 17 stone 6lbs.
The couple heard about the “really good results” some people had after following The 1:1 Diet so they decided to give it a go.
Sam explained: “I had never heard of it before and was keen to look it up. I have tried previous diets in the past, but nothing ever stuck.

“I desperately needed to lose weight to be able to move again, live more comfortably, and be proud of my reflection in the mirror in a body I was happy in.
“We got in touch with our fantastic consultant, Sarah to see if she could help us. We were both wary in the beginning but determined to lose the weight.”
Ashleigh added: “Despite my scepticism, I lost 10lbs in the first week! I was amazed! After a couple of days, I got used to being on plan and it felt like my normal routine.
“Doing this alongside some counselling meant that my mental health was in a much better place. I thought yes, I am finally achieving something that I never thought I would, and I was proud of myself for the first time in years.”
