Delicious Meal Plans

We're famous for our food: delicious yet quick-to-prepare weight loss recipes

Membership to the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet gives you access to a number of different meal plans to suit your preferences.

All meal plans are created using the same higher protein, low GI philosophy which ensures satiety throughout the day. In other words, when you follow our meal plans you won't go hungry.

Instead of counting calories we focus on everyday whole foods and provide a simple meal plan that fits into your lifestyle. All meal plans are flexible and allow you to swap in and out meals that you like and don't like.

Our meal plans

After joining the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet you can select from a variety of meal plans or feel free to swap between meal plans over the duration of your membership.

Protein Balance

Our Protein Balance family of meal plans is different from other high protein diets. These plans distribute protein more evenly throughout the day to help you feel fuller between meals.

The latest Protein Balance meal plan is called Protein Balance Boost and will help you lose weight and boost your mood and wellbeing.

  • Protein Balance Boost: For weight loss and to boost your mood
  • Protein Balance Plus: Delicious new recipes
  • Protein Balance Basic: Cheaper and quicker options
  • Protein Balance: The original super popular Protein Balance option

The basic idea is to get at least 25 g of protein at every meal - and around 100 g of protein per day. This will maximise your body fat loss and ensure muscle retention.

Gut Health

If you are concerned about your gut health, this is the meal plan for you. The Gut Health meal plan has similiar protein levels to Protein Balance but the meals are designed to be gut friendly. 

You can take our Gut Health check to gauge the state of your gut. 

Total Wellbeing Diet for Gut Health meal plan is high in protein and focuses on fibre and resistant starch which has been designed for weight loss and to sort out stomach-related issues. The higher fibre and high protein combination works to increase satiety so you feel full throughout the day.
