With so many diets out there to choose from, it’s no wonder many clients are confused about which nutritional program is the best one for them!

You may have seen the French diet, the Atkins diet, the Cabbage Soup Diet or the South Beach Diet and after trying to analyze which one best suits your requirements, decided to give up as it is just too confusing!

Along comes our very own Aussie version – the CSIRO “Total Well Being” diet!

I noticed it has topped the best seller list at many book stores recently.

I must say that I was pleasantly surprised at the principles behind the book as they were promoting a very similar philosophy that we have been teaching at Peak Physique for years:

1) They increase protein intake to satisfy daily (and activity) requirements
2) They reduce the consumption of carbohydrates – not eliminate, but reduce, as many of us are victim of “over consuming” carbohydrates.
3) They increase the intake of goods fats

The “total Well Being Diet” has some useful recipes that you can simply download from and also a 7 week diet plan.

I was not happy with the actual amount of regularity that the diet recommends, as they have prescribed only 3 meals: Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner.

Experience with consulting to literally hundreds of individuals eating programs over 10 years tells me that to increase the metabolism we need to be constantly grazing food. Especially those of us that exercise. This includes mid morning & mid afternoon snacks.

Unfortunately, with what I have read, the diet fails to provide that essential information.

To summarise, you may find the recipes very useful, but we may need to “tweak” the regularity of meals to satisfy your requirements!
