The CSIRO Low Carb Diet Book provides another great option for people concerned about weight management or type 2 diabetes.

The CSIRO Low Carb Diet is an energy-controlled diet plan that is lower in carbohydrate and higher in protein and health fats and remains nutritionally replete.

CSIRO's Nutrition and Health Research clinic have discovered a clear link between a low carbohydrate diet and diabetes management. Our research found that if people incorporate more healthy fats and lean protein into their diet, while reducing the intake of carbohydrates, they could significantly improve their health and wellbeing. 

For the millions of Australians who are overweight and/or have type 2 diabetes or are at risk of developing it, this research could make a real difference to the diet and lifestyle decisions they make. 

Our researchers wanted to be able to provide a clear and comprehensive overview of the science and benefits behind the low carbohydrate diet so they developed the CSIRO Low-Carb Diet and the CSIRO Low Carb Every Day books.
