Assignment:
Review of Literature chapter (for a research proposal paper): “The Effect Of a High Protein Diet On Body Composition In Overweight And Obese Men And Women With Or Without Exercise”

“Begin the literature review with a broad general topic and then narrow it down to a more specific idea. Organize, integrate, summarize, synthesize and evaluate research articles (attached).
Websites, textbooks, and review articles can also be used to provide ?background? information on the topic.
The only websites allowed are: .gov, .org and .edu.

Please follow the outline:

I. INTRODUCTION (1-1.5 pages)
(for example:)
1 paragraph:
According to the World Health Organization, obesity is one of the 10 most preventable health risks. At the same time about 300,000 deaths a year in the United States can be linked to obesity. Obesity is associated with health problems such as …
The rest:
– Provide a clear picture of how you will organize the paper.
– State the overall sequence of the review – what will
be included in the review. Point out relevant trends about the topic. Disclose conflict in theory, methodology, evidence or conclusions regarding previous research studies. This section is also the place to discuss adequacy and relevance of the literature
– The last paragraph:
The purpose of this literature review is to examine the current literature as it pertains to the study of high protein diet effects on body composition of overweight and obese men and women with or without exercise…

II. OVERWEIGHT AND OBESITY EPIDEMIC
(1 paragraph, in general)

III. RISK FACTORS AND COMPLICATIONS
(in general, preferably mentioned in the research articles to make a connection to the next chapter IV)

IV. TREATMENT
1) TRADITIONAL DIET&EXERCISE APPROACH
“Diet and exercise are key elements in weight control…..” (+-1 paragraph, in general)
2) MODERATE PROTEIN DIET WITH NO EXERCISE
from the research articles
3) HIGH PROTEIN DIET WITH NO EXERCISE
from the research articles
4). MODERATE PROTEIN DIET WITH EXERCISE
from the research articles
5) HIGH PROTEIN DIET WITH EXERCISE
from the research articles

V. POSSIBLE BENEFITS OF CONSUMING HIGH PROTEIN DIET
(the ones mentioned in the research articles)

VI. POSSIBLE ADVERSE EFFECTS OF HIGH PROTEIN DIET
(the ones mentioned in the research articles)

VII. CONCLUSION
(an overview of what is known about your topic. It is an evaluation of the current body of knowledge regarding the topic. )

VIII. REFERENCES
(APA style)

Organize the body of the paper (III, IV, V, VI by relating the articles to each other and showing trends in the literature.
For each research article you will provide a summary of the purpose, hypothesis, methods, population,
intervention, results and conclusions (short).

The papers can be grouped according to common themes or factors. These can include different approaches to the topic, conclusions of the researchers, specific purposes or objectives, or chronology.
Compare the articles by evaluating the similarities and differences among them.
Look for patterns in the methods, subjects tested, results, and conclusions. Emphasize the main arguments or findings made in each article.

Please, read the research papers. The last paper was done only based on abstracts, I had to rewrite the whole thing, also it was not in APA format.

(!!!)The most important points of the paper for grading:
– Headings and subheadings are used as specified.
– The purpose of the review is appropriate.
– Includes the 5 research articles specified for the assignment.
– References are primarily peer reviewed journals or other approved sources (.gov, .org)
– Summary of the research articles is complete and well integrated with the topic. It reveals a thorough evaluation of the population, methods and results.

Please contact me with any questions. I tried to provide as much details as I could.
I hope for a good paper and appreciate your help!
Thank you!!!!!
