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.
Low Carb Diet
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.
CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet
The CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet is a scientifically formulated high-protein, low-GI eating plan to help you lose weight.
CSIRO Womens Health Guide
The CSIRO Women's Health and Nutrition Guide offers research-based advice on the critical role of lifelong healthy eating as the cornerstone of overall good health. In the book, we encourage people to think about food as a way to nourish their bodies for health and wellness instead of denying themselves and restricting eating.
Healthy Gut Diet
A healthy gut is pivotal to a healthy body – improve your gut health with the CSIRO Healthy Gut Diet , backed by decades of scientific research.
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.
With our specialist knowledge of how foods, extracts and nutrients impact gut, cardio-metabolic and brain health, we can develop and scientifically substantiate nutrition solutions resulting in health and economic benefits for Australians.
