Since the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet was first launched, scientists have been studying the habits of thousands of members at different stages of their weight loss journey. This ongoing research has helped the diet and program evolve to ensure the online tools support members in not only achieving the greatest weight loss but also in keeping the weight off long term.
CSIRO recently analysed the long-term weight loss results of CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet members. The data showed that on average members who complete the 12 Week Program lose 7.2% after 12 weeks, 9% after 6 months and then maintain their weight loss for the remainder of the year.
This study revealed the importance of tracking, self-monitoring and ongoing education. Members who lost 10% or more of their body weight in their first year used the online tools and features more often — they viewed the menu plan, used the food diary and tracked their weight more regularly — than members who lost less than 5%.
Our “super star” members (those who engaged with the tools and features the most) continued to lose weight for a full year, with an average total weight loss of 22.3kg or 21.7% after 1 year. ⓘ
