Is this scientific diet the solution to weight loss?
Written by engage on March 6, 2019
Obesity is a big problem for Australia
Obesity is a significant contributor to the impact of chronic disease in Australia. Approximately 63 per cent of the Australian population is overweight or obese.
Recent estimates for Australia suggest that poor diet costs Australia around $5 billion each year ($6.2 billion in today’s terms)1, with around two thirds due to direct health-care costs. Other studies including overweight and obesity (for which poor nutrition can be a causal factor) find that this costs an additional $11.6 billion per year or $12.5 billion in today’s terms.
The Total Wellbeing Diet (TWD) Online was launched in 2015 by CSIRO and SP Health. The TWD Online platform was developed as a result of research around weight loss conducted within CSIRO’s Health and Nutrition Program since 1999.
The program provides scientific substantiation that a high protein, lower carbohydrate diet is safe and effective in diabetes and weight loss management.
