Alina is an award-winning, board-certified health coach, detox specialist, chef and creator of #1 Diet in America, as selected by Harper’s Bazaar Magazine. But just in 2009, Alina was a marketing executive who had a bad relationship with desserts and didn’t even know how to peel a shallot.
Alina’s unique approach to food says that creating a healthy diet is like choosing the fashions that fill your closet. To fit well, your diet has to reflect your unique personality and lifestyle. It’s a philosophy she calls “Couture Nutrition®” and sharing it with others is her passion. When you understand food through fashion, she says, you learn realistic ways to boost your energy, control your weight, and look simply fabulous. Or as Alina likes to put it, “you blossom.”
Born in St. Petersburg, Russia, and unafraid of new challenges, Alina came to America alone at only 15 with a dream to start a new life and launch a fulfilling career.
Alina began her journey at a Quaker high school in Maryland, then earned a degree in Design Management from the Parsons School of Design and has parlayed her sense of fashion design to her passion for food, nutrition and cooking in a way that creates your own individual style.
She became a board certified by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners after she completed her studies at the Institute For Integrative Nutrition – world’s largest nutrition school.
Alina joins dare2detox to coach clients of all ages, both in person and across the world on how to achieve vibrant health and happiness with a teaching style that’s both fun and easy to follow.
