About The Fat Lady Slims

The Fat Lady Slims provides education on low-carb and ketogenic diets - mostly in the form of flash-card like questions.

The Fat Lady Slims has been created by Roz Beste. Roz is an IT Trainer and database designer living in Canberra, Australia. She first read Gary Taubes' books in Feb 2012 and has been following a low carb diet since that time - losing around 15kg in weight.

Roz says 'So much of what we read in the media about losing weight has no science behind it, so it was really refreshing to read about low-carb diets and how they are backed up by genuine studies.'

'However, it is a long time since I left school - and trying to remember back to my biology classes is difficult so although I love reading about the facts behind low-carb diets, I was having a problem getting my head around all the science'. She decided to create an app (and website, and Facebook page) to try to help people like her learn the facts.

Roz is a keen singer in her spare time and the name of this site is a twist on the phrase 'The opera ain't over till the fat lady sings'.
