Gemma was nominated for this award because it recognizes the direct seller who is an award-winning seller and epitomizes the industry.

Through being a consultant with The 1:1 Diet, Gemma has been able to take her family on incredible holidays, set her children up with savings, overpaid on the mortgage, and is on track to be mortgage-free before she and her husband turn 50.

She said: “It's been incredibly life-changing in so many ways, and I thank my lucky stars I decided to lose weight all those years ago and give this business a go.”

"Our consultants are key to both our brand and the unique support we provide to dieters - these latest awards further cement their excellence at both an industry and national level.”
