The CSIRO Diet
The CSIRO diet is gaining popularity - CSIRO stands
for the Commonwealth and Industrial Scientific Research
It is an Australian organisation that researches a
multitude of industries including the following sectors.
Agribusiness, Energy and Transport, Environment and
Natural Resources, Health,Communication and Services,Manufacturing,
and Mineral Resources.
There has recently been alot of talk about the CSIRO
total Wellbeing Diet. The organisation began a research project to
discover why so many Austrailians are overweight- one in two
Australians is overweight and one in three obese. CSIRO scientists
have spent the past eight years looking at fad diets and have
developed one that is proven and is backed by the federal
This Australian model is not overweight, but many fellow
CSIRO claims the Total Wellbeing Diet is not just another
diet, but a long-term eating plan that will make you feel good and
could even prolong your life.
The CSIRO diet helps most people lose half a kilo per
week. Some even lose two to three kilos per week. It is said people
lose the weight and keep it off.
The CSIRO Total Wellbeing diet is a high protein, low
carbohydrate diet. Unlike fad high-protein diets, the CSIRO plan is
nutritionally balanced and contains a moderate amount of
slow-release carbohydrates, which help to keep blood sugar levels
The CSIRO diet people say you won't just lose weight.
Your cholesterol levels come down, your blood sugar levels come
down, you will also see a reduction in your blood pressure.
A typical eating day could include:
Breakfast: three quarters of a cup of high fibre
cereal with low fat milk and a banana.
Lunch: a salmon and salad sandwich with a low-fat
Dinner: beef and vegetable kebabs with salad and even
dessert — some fruit and custard.
I have not tried this plan as it seems to be aimed at
meateaters- however if you would like more information, you can
