About Dr. IRINA 2016-11-07T10:16:49+00:00

My Dear Friend,

If you are browsing my web pages, this is perhaps the moment when you think “Who is she and why should I listen to her? What does she know about a healthy lifestyle and how she can help me?”

Here is my answer to your reasonable question:

I am a former Primary Care Physician; practiced medicine in Russia and then in Israel.

Currently, I am a Wellness Consultant,  Certified Professional Weight Loss and Life Coach. Being passionate about wellness, I present my methods in a way that is easy for you to understand, and fun to apply.

In a good way, my life has been very challenging. I went through two immigrations, twice starting life from scratch and absorbing two absolutely different cultures. I changed apartments, cities, and countries, learned two new languages, changed jobs and even had to change my profession.

My passion for contributing to people’s health and vitality gave me the courage to proceed on blind faith and do everything I can for your better health, divine happiness, longevity and  GOOD feelings!

“This is the first time I’ve ever given a testimonial. However, I cannot pass up an opportunity to share how Dr.Irina Koles has inspired me in my life. At one point or another in our lives, we face obstacles or events that leave us feeling as if we failed. It is at those times when we need to know that someone is in our corner, coaching us, cheering for us and most of all, believing in us.
Dr. Irina is one of those rare individuals who has touched my life profoundly. She has a sincere desire to help others to be the best they can be. She has the unique quality of looking beyond the surface to see deep down inside and helping one discover their own strengths – strengths most of us don’t even know we possess.
Dr. Irina, I want to thank you for my terrific vision plan. I can’t believe how you were able to capture everything that we had talked about. First, the questions were great because they helped me to dig deeper into what it was that I wanted to create in my life. I love all the different categories that we were able to envision. I feel like my life is right out there on the table. Actually, literally, it is!
Dr. Irina Koles is my dream mentor. She is a perfectionist, kind, firm, good with boundaries, and extremely organized about her work. She is so positive and encouraging, and consistent. With her support, I’ve achieved things I never thought possible for myself. I’ve learned things about myself that I didn’t know, and I didn’t even know that I needed to know them! I have so much more confidence that I can do my best and become more me. Thank you for your support – now I feel like I have a clearer idea of where I’m going!”

Do I have my own “weight lossexperience”? Have I been struggling with extra pounds? YES, and here is my story:

By age 30, I had never followed any diet. Loving to cook, I threw parties for 20 to 30 people with ease, making all the meals by myself. I enjoyed all of that without even thinking about gaining extra pounds. But, after age 30, I started to gain weight. I definitely did not like that and began practicing a low-calorie diet like many other people. I lost my extra pounds successfully and periodically allowed myself to eat whatever I wanted at parties or restaurants. Initially, this strategy worked well, but then something strange happened; I did not eat much, but I was gaining weight… So, I started to eat even less, practiced some “magical herbal weight loss pills,” but still gained weight. It was depressing and very stressful.

One day, looking for more weight loss solutions, I discovered a system based on something called a Glycemic Index. I found it interesting, but totally…odd. However, something forced me to consider that unusual nutritional approach. I had to read and re-read the information several times and it took me about two months to change my perception, to accept a new theory and to start applying that.

The results were amazing! I could eat the food that I had not had for years! It even became an interesting journey; I enjoyed discovering new food with  Low Glycemic Index  and could easily adjust my favorite recipes. It was like a dream come true. I ate, I cooked and I stayed slim and energetic!

Since then, I am following that amazing system successfully. I’ve taught it to hundreds of my patients, my family, friends and everyone who is interested in keeping the ideal weight, being healthy and enjoy life fully.

However, being overweight is not just a nutrition issue. It’s a problem involving nutritional, behavioral and family habits, lack of self-esteem, miscorrelation between willpower and imagination, feelings of guilt and judgment. The key to success is in changing the way of thinking. Changing the Eating Habits Blueprint. The focus should be on developing a healthy lifestyle, instead dieting.

Why I succeed to keep the desired weight for over 15 years, when other don’t? Do I eat less, exercise more, or have a stronger willpower? None of them! I don’t have enough time and willpower for vigorous exercising; I LOVE to eat, and lack of a good food makes me frustrated. The resolution came with starting to THINK differently, in seeing a bigger picture, in focusing on the causes, and not on results.

As I always say, it is NOT about your weight, it’s about your WHOLE LIFE!

To Your Health and Success,

Dr. Irina Koles
