There are plenty of fad diets on the market but none of them are backed by science.

Australia's national science agency the CSIRO has revealed the key to losing three times more weight is linked to technology.

Almost 60,000 Australians have followed the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet online since 2015, giving them instant access to digital diet tools, including meal plans.

This study found those who completed the 12-week program lost an average of 5.3 per cent of their starting weight- three times more than participants who weren't consistent.

Dr Gilly Hendrie, the CSIRO research scientist who led the study, says the diet plan offers hope to people looking for sustainable weight loss.

"The diet really includes whole foods, you've got three meals a day, you've got snacks, you've got flexibility within the system so you can really customise and personalise your menu plans."

Mother of three Adele Fiene started the online program in May last year.

"I've lost 20 kilograms in 22 weeks. The biggest thing is I have probably gone from a 16 to a size 10," she said.

The study found similar weight loss across all demographics.

"Now we have evidence, in a very large sample, that combining the diet with a specially designed system including online tools, results in weight loss for even more people," Dr Hendrie said.
