The CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet was developed by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Organization. CSIRO is Australia’s National Science Agency. This diet is actually a book intended for those in Australia, but it is stated that anyone from any country can use it and benefit from it. The CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet book was released to the United States in May of 2006 and became a best seller in Australia. This diet claims that any adult can use it regardless of fitness level or age to lose weight and improve their overall health.

Product Features

The CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet focuses on a high protein diet where dieters are to take in very few carbohydrates. This diet’s intention is to have users eat foods that keep them fuller for a longer period of time and it is thought that a diet high in protein also helps to prevent certain conditions such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease. The CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet book does encourage exercise and explains the importance of it. It explains the basic elements of the diet and includes twelve full weeks of meal plans and eighty-five different recipes. There is also a follow-up book that has recipe substitutions as well as new recipes.

The CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet doesn’t really stand out from the rest of the weight loss and weight management diet programs and/or books today. The CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet may not be for everyone because there are no supplements included with any proven fat burners or appetite suppressants in it so those seeking a diet in which supplements are used and have the ability to suppress the appetite and burn fat may want to research other programs or products that are intended for appetite suppression and fat burning. Those seeking weight loss should also develop a healthy diet and exercise program that works for them because then they are more likely to stick to it. Users will need to assess their health and fitness goals and decide if using the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet is right for them.

    CSIRO stands for “Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation’. You left the “Research” out of you description and they don’t use a “z” in “Organisation”.
