CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet books

The CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet is a nutritionally balanced, scientifically proven eating plan that can help you feel less hungry and lose weight.

As a leading authority in dietary research, CSIRO was a logical place to start for the many dietitians and consumers  who contacted CSIRO with concerns about the promotion of high protein diets without reliable supporting evidence.

Research at CSIRO's Nutrition and Health Research Clinic in Adelaide, South Australia, led to the development of the higher protein, low-fat diet that is nutritious, facilitates sustainable weight loss and is supported by scientific evidence.
