Practical Dietary Research Design and Applications for Southwestern American Indians

  • Margaret E. Hendrikx


Some of the practical problems in planning human research studies on effects of fiber feeding are the selection of type and amount of fiber, dietary calculation of the fiber and nutrients, patient acceptance, study duration, and differences in populations. In both planning and evaluation of research, there are difficulties in interpretation of the literature because of differences in terminology and analytic technique.
