Pan Macmillan Australia is thrilled to announce that The CSIRO Low-Carb Diet shot straight to the number one bestselling book in all categories in its first week of release, and continues to hold this position.
Released Tuesday 28th February 2017, The CSIRO Low-Carb Diet follows the incredible success of the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet released in 2005, having sold one million copies and hugely boosting our nation's understanding of health, diet and lifestyle. The overwhelming response to The CSIRO Low-Carb Diet by Associate Professor Grant Brinkworth and Senior Research Dietitian Pennie Taylor further proves that the CSIRO is an institution that Australians completely trust and turn to. With this book the CSIRO are leading the way in nutritional research, attracting interest from health professionals and bodies in Australia and around the world.
"We prize our international reputation as a leader in nutrition and lifestyle research," said Rob Grenfell, CSIRO Health and Biosecurity Director. "The success of this diet program and book demonstrates that Australians have an appetite for healthy eating."
Nutritional science and knowledge continues to evolve and The CSIRO Low-Carb Diet is another variation of a high protein eating pattern that further reduces carbohydrate and increases healthy fats. Low-carb diets may have been popular for a while, yet concerns have persisted about their safety and nutritional quality. Today, CSIRO research shows that this new scientifically formulated CSIRO low-carb diet can help to improve weight and particularly improve blood glucose control – a crucial initiative when research shows that two-thirds of Australians are overweight or obese and the prevalence of type 2 diabetes is rising at an alarming rate.
This diet has been tested in one the most comprehensive low-carb diet trials conducted in Australia, and is based on a large body of scientific evidence and supported by several independent clinical studies from top-tier academic institutions around the world. With this book, the CSIRO are now able to offer another weight loss option to Australians with an explanation of the science and benefits behind the diet. Such benefits include weight-loss and improved metabolic health, blood glucose control and diabetes management – cutting the need for diabetes medication by 40 per cent.
The CSIRO Low-Carb Diet features:
•         80 nutritious low-carb recipes, including breakfasts, salads & soups, mains, snacks & sweet treats
•         Clear description of low-carb versus high-carb food
•         12 weekly meal plans and shopping lists
•         A comprehensive exercise plan, fully photographed

Associate Professor Grant Brinkworth is a principal research scientist in Clinical Nutrition at CSIRO Health and Biosecurity. He has a PhD in diet nutrition and exercise science, and more than 15 years' experience leading research teams and studies evaluating the effects of dietary patterns, foods, nutritional components and physical exercise on weight loss, metabolic disease risk management, health and performance.
Pennie Taylor is the senior research dietitian at CSIRO Health Biosecurity, and her expertise is in dietary patterns and design, nutrition and obesity. She has managed and supported many clinical trials exploring the influence of dietary patterns and dietary composition on health outcomes. Pennie is also the contributor to the CSIRO and Baker IDI Diabetes Diet and Lifestyle Plan and the CSIRO Total Wellbeing range of programs.
