About the Diet

The CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet is designed for maximum body fat loss.

The CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet is a higher protein, low GI eating plan that is scientifically formulated by Australia's national science agency, the CSIRO. The plan offers options for fast and sustainable weight loss and good gut health.

  • The food is delicious
  • The portions are generous
  • The unique higher protein, low GI formula keeps you satisfied

All our meal plans take advantage of the latest scientific evidence in weight loss. Research shows that a higher protein, low GI diet is effective in body fat loss and keeping the weight off long-term.

The brand new Protein Balance Power meal plan features all new delicious and healthy recipes that are higher protein and low GI. There's more protein-packed goodness coming from beans, lentils and fish, without taking meat off the menu. Plus you'll get a greater variety of snacks, as well as healthy indulgence recipes for when you need that treat.

Curbs your cravings

Our meal plans are designed around higher protein, low GI foods which keep you feeling fuller for longer. When you feel satisfied between meals you are less likely to give in to your cravings.

According to our research unhealthy snacking is the most common source of extra and unnecessary kilojoules in our diet. By curbing your cravings and eliminating unhealthy snacking you'll reduce your overall energy intake leading to increased weight loss.

A healthy mindset around food

Better health isn't just about losing weight. It's also about feeling better about yourself and boosting your everyday mood.

While the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet is a weight loss program, we believe that learning to eat healthier and experiencing the invigorating effects of healthy eating can be life changing.

A positive relationship with food will put you in the right mindset to lose weight and we provide the tools you need to get there.
