But, with the ‘pandemic pounds’ creeping up quickly, the question on everyone’s mind is, how do they do it?
For years we’ve been bombarded with ‘get thin quick’ schemes, from those pushing paleo to the increasingly common keto diet.
But, how do we know which ones are worth the hype?
Well, the CSIRO is changing the game with their scientific approach to weight loss.
Their new recipe book includes delicious and nutritious meals and has even been proven to prevent the onset of diabetes, offering a simple pathway to long-term success.
A long-term solution
“It’s all based on the latest scientific evidence,” said Professor Grant Brinkworth.
“We’ve put this diet plan together and we’ve shown it’s really effective for sustained long-term weight loss – but particularly important for blood glucose control, reducing diabetes medication requirements and improving heart health.
“It’s a really effective long-term plan, particularly for people suffering from type II diabetes.”
Type II diabetes affects the body’s ability to metabolise glucose and maintain optimal sugar levels – and around 1.7 million Australians are living with diabetes today.
Without ongoing management, potential health complications include heart disease, high blood pressure, failing eyesight, and increased risk of infection and damage to vital body organs.
Type II diabetes has also been closely linked to the development of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
“There’s lots of modifiable risk factors, and that’s what we’re trying to challenge here,” Brinkworth said.
“Obesity is a big risk factor, particularly abdominal obesity around the mid-drift – and that’s why we are seeing such a rise in type II diabetes because we are seeing this obesity epidemic.
But abnormal cholesterol, elevated blood glucose, poor diet and inactivity are all risk factors of type II diabetes.
“Our plan improves and modifies all the risk factors at the same time.”
Backed by science
The new book is based on research from around the world, as well as original CSIRO research.
“A lower carbohydrate plan is really effective in not only reducing the risk of diabetes but controlling it much better if you do have it,” Brinkworth said.
“People can use it even if you don’t have diabetes – it’s a nutritionally complete lifestyle plan.
“It also includes a self-help guide to improving your resistance exercise training, which is such an important component that goes hand-in-hand with your diet to really improve your health.”
