No, the Total Wellbeing Diet is a higher protein, low GI eating plan based on a wide body of research, including clinical trials conducted by CSIRO.
Low GI refers to certain types of carbohydrate foods that your body digests slowly, keeping you feeling fuller for longer. By slowing down the digestion and absorption of carbohydrates, low GI foods will help steady both your blood glucose and insulin levels, which may also help with hunger and control overeating.
Research has shown that a higher protein, low GI diet can lead to greater weight loss and healthy weight maintenance. The style of eating combined with exercise is one of the most effective ways to improve your overall health and wellbeing.
