We’d like you to meet Hope. Hope is the latest innovation from the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet. Developed using artificial intelligence, Hope is a digital weight loss coach who is here to help Australians achieve greater weight loss.
The CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet was created over a decade ago when CSIRO performed research to find an effective weight loss plan suitable for everyday Australians. Since then, CSIRO scientists have continued to study the impact of CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet and its digital platform. They recently shared their findings in the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet 5 Year Study, one of the world’s largest scientific studies of a weight loss program. The 5 Year Study revealed the secrets – or critical habits – behind the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet that have helped members lose three times more weight than members who start but don’t complete the 12 Week Program. Based on these findings scientists went on to create a tool, the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet Start Strong Guide, a simple to-do list that helps members hit all their weight loss milestones.
Hope is the next evolution in the science behind the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet. Shaped by 10 years of research, over 100 million bits of information from the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet platform and the power of super-computing. By combining all this knowledge, Hope is able to predict weight loss targets, track progress and provide timely feedback.
As a member of the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet, Hope will predict how much weight you could lose by following the 12 Week Program. She suggests reasonable weight loss targets determined by a super-computer that has been “trained” by looking at the anonymised weight loss results of CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet members. Analysis by CSIRO scientists has shown that 50 percent of members who complete the 12 Week Program meet or beat Hope’s predictions.
Hope wants Australians to succeed at weight loss and she’s here to encourage and motivate you on your journey. She will also provide guidance on the three key behaviours that scientists have determined lead to greater weight loss on the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet:
CSIRO research has found that members who frequently engaged in these behaviours achieved a weight loss of 8.1 percent of their starting weight over 12 weeks, compared to 3.3 percent in 12 weeks for those who has low adherence to these behaviours.
Through machine learning and further analysis, Hope will continue to grow, expanding her knowledge and features as more CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet members engage with her. This means that in the future, Hope will deliver even more personalised advice and insights into the behaviours and habits you can practice to reach your weight loss goals.
Since most members need more than 12 weeks to reach their ultimate weight loss goal, Hope will begin by breaking big weight loss goals into reasonable milestones that are achievable in 12 weeks, but as she gets smarter, she will soon be able to offer even more support beyond 12 weeks, continuing to inspire members until they reach their ultimate weight loss goals.
Hope is available to all new members of the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet 12 Week Program. You’ll meet her as soon as you have set up your program through the website or the app.
Hope is included in the refundable membership price of the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet for all new members who sign up for the 12 Week Program.
