Our diet and lifestyle programs have been developed to improve healthy lifestyle behaviours. These include improving diets and physical activity to enhance wellbeing and reduce the risk of obesity or manage chronic diseases such as Type 2 Diabetes.

Diet and Lifestyle programs

CSIRO is at the forefront of nutritional science and lifestyle research in Australia. We also have a track record of translating these scientific findings into a variety of practical and easy to follow diet and exercise programs that Australians can use to improve their health. As the science evolves, so too does the information we provide to the community. For example, we have weight loss diets that are based on whole foods or meal replacements, and are available in book form, online and through pharmacies.

Nutrition and health research capabilities


CSIRO has decades of success in researching the complex relationship between health (of individuals, populations and the environment), food and consumer choice across the life course.


Our research in food and nutrition spans the entire value chain, and our expertise ranges from improving the nutritional qualities of food to providing the scientific expertise needed to support health claims.

We are also supporting better health for all Australians, working with both private and public sectors to bring scientifically validated health programs, tools and more to communities and individuals.
