Steps to Success

Unlike any other diet, at Cambridge Weight Plan we offer one-to-one Consultant support and a range of programmes that can be adapted to suit your particular circumstances and weight loss target. Your Consultant will help you to choose the right step to start with and guide you on your journey through the steps, until you reach your goal weight.

How it Works

Your step-by-step programme can move both up and down the chart, such as from Step 1A up to Step 6 or from Step 5 down to Step 1A and then back up to Step 6. The order should match your unique body needs.

The higher steps are designed for more gradual weight loss. You will lose weight faster on the lower steps.You may prefer to start on a higher step and get your body used to a lower intake of calories before you move to a lower step.  

Once you have reached your goal weight, you could work your way up the steps to stabilise your body weight. The ultimate goal, after you have lost weight, is to stay at Step 6 for long term maintenance.

Your Cambridge Weight Plan Consultant will guide you through your weight-loss journey and offer advice on preparation, stabilisation and weight management. You will also get help with long term fitness and healthy eating.
