The CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet combines a higher protein eating plan with low GI carbohydrates for optimal health, wellbeing and weight loss.
Many diets drastically cut carbohydrates from the menu but we know that high-quality, low GI foods are both a healthy and welcome part of many people's meals.
Not sure how low GI carbohydrates work? Watch the video below to hear Professor Jennie Brand-Miller of the Glycemic Index Foundation discuss the research behind low glycemic index diets and weight control.
The Glycemic Index (GI) is a scientifically based measure of carbohydrate quality. It tells us how fast certain carbohydrates hit the bloodstream.
Carbohydrates that break down slowly during digestion and release glucose more gradually into the bloodstream have a low GI and are proven to be better for weight loss and weight maintenance.
A key benefit of low glycemic foods is their effect on appetite. The sustained energy of low glycemic carbohydrates helps you feel fuller for longer, which can make it easier to stick to a diet.
The CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet makes it easy to follow a higher protein, healthy low GI eating plan, with easy to cook healthy recipes.
