CSIRO Low-Carb Diet: Nut and oat granola with orange zest
We’ve filmed some of our faviourite CSIRO Low-Carb Diet recipes so you can cook along with us!
Approximately 1 million Australian adults have type 2 diabetes and over 2 million people are pre-diabetic. That’s why we undertook one of the largest and most complex diet and lifestyle intervention studies in Australia, comparing different dietary approaches for managing type 2 diabetes.
The results of the study is creating a paradigm shift in our thinking about how we should manage type 2 diabetes.
Those on the low-carb diet had 40 per cent reduction in the amount of diabetes medication they required, twice as effective as the high carbohydrate, low fat diet.
three times more effective at reducing blood glucose spikes across the day.
So, to help the many Aussies battling this disease, we’ve developed the CSIRO Low-Carb Diet book. The book provides an easy to follow, structured meal plans including recipes, clear descriptions of low-carb versus high-carb foods, shopping lists and a complete exercise plan.
