The CSIRO Diet

The CSIRO diet is gaining popularity - CSIRO stands for the Commonwealth and Industrial Scientific Research Organisation.

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 government.

This Australian model is not overweight, but many fellow countrymen are

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 even.

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 cappuccino.

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 download the first chapter for free by clicking on this link.
CSIRO states the book is available from all good book stores.
