$36.99

Featuring 80 brand-new recipes and twelve weeks of meal plans, this easy-to-follow, comprehensive lifestyle solution can help you not only to reach your weight-loss goals, but also to maximise the diet's benefits for improved metabolic health and blood glucose control, and effective type 2 diabetes prevention and management.

Based on research from around the world, as well as original CSIRO research, the low-carb diet and exercise plan has proved successful in managing preventable and lifestyle-related metabolic diseases, including obesity and type 2 diabetes. The diet lowers the proportion of carbohydrate relative to protein and unsaturated 'healthy' fat, and encourages participants to follow a regular exercise routine.

Today, around 1.7 million Australians have diabetes and 280 Australians develop diabetes every day. This book provides an accessible, simple solution for helping Australians prevent onset and combat the symptoms.
