Hundreds of thousands of Australians were the first to sample the weight loss findings in the bestseller The CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet book. In a single year, 600 000 copies were sold and the CSIRO diet has been making its way into homes around the world ever since. So what is so exciting about this eating plan? It’s a complete, scientifically-researched, healthy lifestyle guide in a book. This makes it credible and proven to millions looking to lose weight and maintain their newfound health for years to come.
What the CSIRO research team discovered were facts that others have been promoting for years. The difference between this diet and its counterparts is that studies were open to the public, many tried it and they found the weight loss success they were hoping for. It also helps that CSIRO is a leading research company, not only in Australia but one of the best in the world.
The meal plan is simple: load up on protein and put away as much fat and carbohydrates as you can. Note that your meals have to be balanced therefore it’s not complete elimination of fats and carbohydrates from your diet, but a reduction. Lamb, beef, turkey, pork and nutritious fish like salmon, herring, mackerel and sardines fall under proteins. So do eggs, cottage cheese, mozzarella, beans, soymilk, unsweetened nuts and seeds.
Protein is a winner in the CSIRO diet because it does not raise blood sugar levels, makes you feel full, slows down hunger, helps build muscle and has many other health benefits. For weight watchers, protein is beneficial because it doesn’t slow down your metabolism the way carbohydrates and unhealthy fats do. The faster your metabolism, the faster food is processed which leads to a leaner body.
The research company arrived at this conclusion by testing their high-protein diet on a large group of women. This group was compared to another group that was given food loaded with carbohydrates. Clear evidence suggested that women who ate more protein lost more weight than those who consumed carbohydrates.
The CSIRO diet books give you over 80 high-protein recipes for delicious entrées, salads, main meals and fruity desserts. They have been shown to improve health in people with type 2 diabetes and heart diseases. Recipes are also coupled with an exercise guide that shows you how to execute moves step by step. The diet provides adequate information about eating healthy, portion control and other health matters.
Another reason why this book flew off the shelves is because of its sustainability. It’s a diet plan in a sense that it shapes what you eat for life and not just a “lose weight fast” gimmick. You learn how to cook with healthy ingredients, experiment with different tastes and make low-calorie meals. This diet plan is also popular because it is designed for individuals, families and athletes. It’s one you share with as many people as you like, which will give you more than enough encouragement to get in shape and stay that way.
