"The meal replacement shakes really curbed my cravings during the often challenging first three weeks of a program. The shakes were easy and convenient, and filled me up, so it was easy to say no to office morning teas and end of week takeaways. The transition to the wholefoods program was also critical in me not falling off the wagon, and I was able to keep that confidence and drive with the help of the CSIRO Total Wellbeing tools."

The science behind the Fast Start Shakes

To assess the effectiveness of how the Fast Start meal replacement shakes work with the Total Wellbeing Diet, we conducted a study with obese and overweight Australians who identified as cravers, and the results were outstanding.

  • People in the study lost an average of 4.1kg in the first three weeks. They achieved a clinically-significant weight loss of 5.9kg after six weeks.
  • Participants who finished the Total Wellbeing Diet with Fast Start Shakes lost an average of 7.1kg in 12 weeks. This amount is equivalent to 7.5% of their starting weight.
  • Participants felt 19% more confident in their ability to control their weight by avoiding overeating.
  • 80% of people reporting feeling better at controlling
    their cravings by week 3.

Frequently asked questions

What is in the Fast Start meal replacement shake?

Our CSIRO-backed meal replacement shakes are created with high-quality ingredients that provide a balanced combination of protein, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, and minerals to ensure your nutritional goals are met. The meal replacement shakes are high in fibre, gluten-free and contain no artificial colours, flavours, sweeteners or preservatives.

You can view a list of ingredients here.

Are the Fast Start meal replacement shakes dairy-free, gluten-free or vegan?

Our Fast Start Shakes are gluten free, however, they are not dairy-free or vegan as they do contain milk and soy-based ingredients.

Are the Fast Start Shakes suitable for me?

Fast Start meal replacement shakes are designed for people who battle with cravings, are overweight and obese, and need a simpler way to begin losing weight.

The Fast Start shakes are a formulated meal replacement shake and are not to be used as a total diet replacement.

What makes Fast Start Shakes different to other meal replacement shakes?

Our biggest point of difference is in the approach we take to making sure our members are:

  • educated about nutrition.
  • supported on their weight loss journey.
  • able to transition off the meal replacement shakes and onto a varied whole foods diet.

Meal replacement shakes alone aren't a long-term solution to weight loss because most people will revert to their original diet once they stop having shakes. The Fast Start meal replacement shakes are combined with the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet, which is key for healthy weight loss and long-term behaviour change.

Members who buy Fast Start shakes will use these meal replacement shakes for breakfast and lunch, while eating a CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet dinner for three weeks. After this, they’ll transition to a complete CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet meal plan.
