Could the Total Wellbeing Diet help you achieve your ideal weight?

17 January, 2018
CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet

Dieting sounds simple – eat healthier, reasonably proportioned meals. Easy, right?

For anyone that’s been through a fad diet or two, you know it’s never the case. You tend to fall back on old habits because they were formed to fit with your everyday life. Learning an entirely new set of recipes, completely changing how and potentially where you shop, as well as finding the time to invest in better eating can collapse the best of intentions.

What is the Total Wellbeing Diet?

The Total Wellbeing Diet is a 12 week, flexible and personality-based eating plan that can help you achieve your ideal healthy weight.

It’s designed for regular people

Chances are you’re not an Instagram model or sports champion with a team of nutritionists and health experts following your every step – for a diet to work, you need something flexible and suited to your eating motivations.

The Total Wellbeing Diet is designed to consider your Diet Type, recognising whether you’ll need a sweet pick-me-up to get you over hump day or if ‘no’ is an impossible answer for your friends who want to eat out.

It can subdue the urge to snack

When your body is telling you it only needs one biscuit (just the one), it can be hard to say no, especially when the desire lasts for a long time.

To help avoid unnecessary snacking, the Total Wellbeing Diet has introduced the Protein Balance Program. The program ensures your meals, especially your breakfast, are protein-rich, leaving you feeling fuller for longer.

“If you find it difficult to control what you eat, a redistribution of protein toward breakfast may be the answer to reducing your waistline without leaving you ravenously hungry and craving unhealthy foods,” - Professor Manny Noakes, Senior Principal Research Scientist for CSIRO.

It connects your diet to your life

Fad dieting can be stressful - going out of your way to find the right ingredients, recipes, and apps to store all of your metrics takes a lot of energy.

To save you that energy, the Total Wellbeing Diet provides a platform that brings together every part of your weight loss journey:

  • Connects to Woolworths Online for grocery shopping
  • Syncs with your Fitbit or Garmin devices to keep track of your readings
  • Allows you to swap out meals you don’t like for ones you do
  • Sends reminders and tracking display tools to keep you up-to-date and motivated
  • Gives you a weight loss guide suited to your Diet Type
  • Grants access to forums to swap tips, tricks, advice and recipe ideas

You’re eligible for a discount and rebate through CBHS

If you’re a member of CBHS, you can join the Total Wellbeing Diet at 15% off, and, depending upon your Extras Cover and available benefits, you may be eligible to claim part of the cost of the program.

I joined as a CBHS member in 1978. Through many health events and challenges CBHS has always been there for me and my family. Their exceptional service over this time has always been appreciated.

I've not long joined CBHS from another fund, but so far I've been impressed by the super helpful and friendly staff, the higher claim limits and rebates at a very competitive premium, and how easy it is to lodge manual claims through the app. Thanks CBHS - you've won me over! 😃

I have been with CBHS since I began at CBA 15 years ago...Now I have three beautiful children, one who has a disability. Our top extras cover has been really essential for his early intervention. I do love the ease of claiming online.

What Our Members Think

I am relatively new to CBHS and am loving it already. I worked for a CBA subsidiary a long time ago but was still eligible to join. So much better that the for-profit funds - our premium is only a little more and we pay a lower co-contribution and get great benefits. I am loving the massage rebate for my partner and gym rebate for me!

I'm extremely happy with CBHS! I have been a customer for about six years. I think the price is reasonable. And i would refer you to my family and friends any day. Thank you CBHS!!!

Love CBHS as I never have to doubt that they've got my back when I need it. Been through other insurers who have limited options or limits, yet cost the same or more.
