Hello, my name is Liz O'Connell

I am  the creator of FastaWeigh, an intermittent fasting and low carb eating program for weight loss and improved health.  On my  blog, I explore nutrition, the health benefits of Intermittent Fasting for weight loss and health and maintaining an active, healthy, and occasionally indulgent lifestyle. I am a degree qualified Nutritionist, (Bachelor of Science in Food & Nutrition, Curtin University,Western Australia) and I am currently doing my Masters in Human Nutrition at Deakin University.  In my career I have worked in a variety of positions in the food and wine industries.

As a mother of three children, I am especially interested in healthy living for mums and families.  I love great food and wine and my goal is to enjoy my food and my life so I eat healthily  (most of the time) and don't bother to strive for perfection.  I also write about my love of wine on this blog.

I have had health and wine articles published in Home Beautiful Magazine as well as various online publications including Mouths of Mums, Mum's Lounge and the MamaMia Network.
