Testimonials


  I lost 10kg in 12 weeks with Irena. She is amazing. I had gained 10kg or so in the last few years. I had attributed to turning 50 and peri-menopause. I had nearly accepted this is the way my body would be until a friend at my gym who had last weight with Irena recommended her. She met with me and made a plan that worked for me and my lifestyle. She checks in with everyday and holds me accountable and encourages me. Rather than putting me on a strict diet of what I could eat, I was given choices and taught better eating habits. Most importantly, I have a better healthier relationship with food and understand when I am only eating out of boredom or anxiety. Thanks Irena!

  Irena was recommended to me by a friend who achieved amazing results thanks to her help. I got quite the fright at the beginning of the year when I got on the scale for the first time in ages. I knew it was time for a few serious changes and I am so glad that Irena was part of this journey.
She met me for an assessment and was brutal and honest about what needed to be done and that it was going to take a lot of hard work and commitment. She wasn’t wrong, but she was there every step of the way, encouraging, following up daily, celebrating milestones and dishing out stern talks when they were needed.
Once you’re committed, she will guide you to change bad habits, to keep better track of what you put in your mouth and to get out and do a bit more.
Seven months later and I’m down almost 23kg. And although it took a lot of hard work initially, I now find that the changes we implemented are sustainable and realistic.
Thanks for being my conscience on this journey, Irena!

Thanks Irena and Nutrifit
I had just returned home after 8days in hospital with Covid-19 and change was the only solution to my speedy recovery. I realised that I was given a second chance in life and I need to take it or I could easily return to ill health due to my unhealthy eating habits.
I then contacted a running friend who had lost about 30kg and was looking amazing. She gave me Irena’s number and I immediately called her to set up a meeting with her. That was the day I knew I will make lifestyle changes that will improve my life. I was ready for my new life which came with me being a Covid-19 survivor and getting a “new lease of life”.At first I was somewhat sceptical about my discipline, but together with my family, we took on the healthy eating plan which was to lose weight. After 1week of following the eating plan, I lost 4kgs, despite the odd sugar ( I love grapes and they loaded with sugars) or eating incorrectly at times. Week 2 was better as I realised that if I stuck with the plan, I could lose lots more…that was the start of the loss of 22kg over a period of 4 months…
A BIG THANKS to you Irena for always keeping me on my toes in our weekly chats and ensuring I am accountable to someone for MY weight loss… I would not have been able to achieve these results without your support and encouragement.

  In 4 months of working with Irena I have lost 14.45kg. But more importantly I have learnt how to eat in an affordable, healthy, simple and sustainable way. My relationship with food has changed fundamentally. I feel I now have tools that I will be able to use for the rest of my life to keep myself at a healthy weight. Thanks so much.

 karen-before When I met Irena before Christmas last year I weighed a hefty 117kg. The weight had accumulated slowly over 20 years through the stresses of marriage, children and being a working mum. I had frankly given up, but through Irena’s intervention I realised I had placed myself last on the family’s agenda with regards healthy eating habits. Seven months’ later and 37kgs lighter I attribute the weightloss to Irena’s meal plans which are tailored to suit each individual’s taste, and her daily contact regime. Irena’s rules are simple and easy to follow. She is always at hand to advise when I’m out at a restaurant and don’t know what to choose. The change in life style literally saved my life! I now use Irena’s “diet” to fight breast cancer while I undergo treatment. A truly life saving way of living…

 tracey-before After trying many diets and just getting bigger over the years, I heard about Irena through a customer of mine. She said Irena’s program was different and I liked that. I will never forget our first meeting, Irena was straight to the point, with a very dry sense of humor. She meant business! Irena stays in daily contact with her clients, she personalized the plan to suit your lifestyle. She acts as your coach, support and a friend. There is nothing you can’t tell her! I lost 10 kg in 10 weeks and most importantly learnt how to successfully maintain it. Thank you Irena xxx

 craig-before It’s not an exaggeration to say that Irena transformed my life. When I initially started working with her, I was at my heaviest weight in my life (84kg) and my eating habits were absolutely horrible. In fact, it was not uncommon for me to eat an entire pizza for lunch. As our work together began, we developed an eating plan that Irena suggested I see not as a diet, but as “a new way of life”, something that I could stick to it long-term. She was absolutely right. With her guidance, I completely changed how and what I ate, and within six months I lost 12kg. I was the healthiest I had been since my university days. And I’m happy to say that three years later, I have kept the weight off, and this is because I successfully continue to follow the eating plan Irena developed for me when we started our work together. Just as she said back then, she provided me a “a new way of life” and I couldn’t be more grateful for what she has done for me. I couldn’t have achieved my transformation without her.

  Irena Ross is a genius, with her master tailor made diet plan and lifestyle change she changed mine and my husbands lives for the better. I have not felt this amazing in years, my energy levels have tripled my sleeping pattern has improved and clothes look so much better on me haha. I have lost 10kgs and am managing to keep it off, my mind is set for a healthier lifestyle and I am loving it. My husband has lost 15kgs and looks fabulous. I highly recommend Irene’s program, you can’t go wrong if you follow it.
