CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet Rating

Article navigation

The rating of the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet is on two levels and is based on the clinical evidence so far received for this diet from all the clinical studies so far conducted:

  • Rating as a short term diet – 7.5/10
  • Rating as a long term diet – 5.5/10

The safety of the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet over the longer term has not yet been established


  1. This diet gets a lower rating because it does not include alternate appropriate food sources for non-meat eaters, effectively excluding all vegetarians. While there is some small advice for vegetarians, it is left to the individual to seek professional advice from a qualified dietician to tailor the diet for them, which means it is not the same diet
  2. Until the results of the Institutes of Health, four-year randomised, large scale clinical trial are completed in 2009 and the results are revealed, this diet cannot be endorsed yet as a diet that is safe in the long term as the potential health risks, safety and benefits of this diet have not been studied over a longer period
