To provide a clear overview of the science behind a low-carbohydrate diet – and to help those wanting to adopt one – our researchers developed the CSIRO Low-Carb Diet and the CSIRO Low-Carb Every Day books.

Improve your health with our bestselling low-carb diet books

Featuring nutritious low-carb, high-protein recipes and weekly meal and exercise plans, the CSIRO Low-Carb Diet books can help you lose weight without the hunger pangs.

The CSIRO Low-Carb Diet books can also help those with diabetes; our research has shown that by incorporating more healthy fats and lean protein into their diet, while reducing their carb intake, people with type 2 diabetes can significantly improve their blood glucose control and overall health and wellbeing.
