Studies conducted by CSIRO have shown that higher protein diets are more effective for weight loss and weight maintenance both in the short and long term. It has been proven that a higher protein diet helps to reduce the risk of heart disease and diabetes by lowering triglyceride levels and reducing insulin and glucose levels.
Protein controls appetite
The CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet can help reduce hunger pangs because high protein foods such as lean red meat, chicken and fish help to keep you fuller for longer. The CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet is formulated on the basis of a higher protein, low GI foods diet and offers generous and healthy portions of protein.
A problem with many weight loss diets is that you can end up losing muscle mass as well as body fat. Our new Protein Balance program is designed to distribute protein across all meals of the day to increase your muscle metabolism. It is also more effective at controlling hunger.
In this video, Professor Manny Noakes of CSIRO, explains that higher protein diets regulate appetite and help prevent muscle loss, which are important factors for weight loss.
