Comparing Magazine or Online Nutrition Information* with Published Research.

timer Asked: Aug 3rd, 2018

Question description

Scientific research sometimes contraindicates nutrition information in Health and Fitness magazines or from retail supplement stores. The information may not be completely false, but the information could be exaggerated, embellished, or simply not based on research. However, the information could be very accurate.

  1. Select an article about a specific nutrition recommendation or a specific nutrition supplement from a Health and Fitness magazine or website. Most Health and Fitness magazines and websites now hire a Fitness and/or Nutrition professional to write their nutrition related articles. Thus, instead of an article, you can choose information from a retail website, an online advertisement, or information listed on a supplement container.

Please note: supplements that are very new (so new that research has not yet been conducted) would not be a good choice for this assignment. Also, do not select Creatine, as its proposed benefits are well documented.

  1. Research the same nutrition recommendation or supplement using sources such as published research, scientific journals, textbooks, or reliable websites (commonly ending with .edu, .gov, or .org).


  1. A. List your selected Nutrition Recommendation or Supplement.

B. List the exact source of the claims or proposed benefits (magazine, website, advertisement, actual supplement container, etc.). If possible provide a web link. If using a print advertisement or supplement container, include a picture or photo.

C. List the exact claims and/or proposed benefits from your selected magazine article, website, advertisement, commercial, or supplement container.

  1. A. Using reputable sources, summarize actual research results of the claims or benefits from #1C. Two paragraph minimum.

B. Provide at least 2 references. Our textbook can be used for 1 of the 2 references. Use APA style and format when listing your references. See the Week 2 folder for information on APA style.

C. Compare the information from #1C and #2A. One paragraph minimum.

This Assignment must be typed, and please number the various parts of your submitted assignment (as noted in the Instructions above: 1A, 1B and so on). Submit your assignment by uploading within Canvas. Contact your Instructor, John Parish, if you have questions.

*Or information from health and fitness websites, retail and online supplement stores, advertisements, or supplements containers.
