Strawberries in a Cholesterol.. the Research Proposal

Excerpt from Research Proposal :

This is a positive finding with reliability and validity, in the situation of a compliant population already following a low-cholesterol dietary portfolio. The results of the self-report aspect, i.e. The scaling comparison between the oat bran bread group and the strawberry group indicate that, among this compliant group those who added strawberries were more satisfied and therefore more willing to eat the added anti-oxidant food, as a result of its increased palatability.

Though I agree with the results and application of this study to control for diet, and make sure that dietary variations did not play an extreme role in results, it would be interesting to study this comparative model in a situation where participants were not compliant to another cholesterol-lowering dietary portfolio, utilizing the same blood and urine standards, i.e. To see if the results of physiological reduction and palatability survey ranking would be similar with just this dietary change, which is much more representative of the whole of the hyperlipidemia consort in the general population. As compliance seems to be the most significant challenge in the clinical setting for dietary driven alteration of hyperlipidemia this aspect needs to be addressed in a general population, not already proven to be compliant with a cholesterol lowering diet. The article is extremely interesting, especially noting the very limited level of change than needed to be done to increase the effectiveness of the dietary model and is a very good example of the development of discrete research protocol using a large multi-variant set of data. If I were to do the study I would likely seek out hyperlipidemia participants, again prior to the development of other risk factors for heart disease but before compliance had been established through a broader means and then add compliance as a factor for the analysis of results.
