Study Rationale: This experiment on the effect that the use of personalized low-fat meal plans has on body fat reduction is important for several reasons. First, the details of this research study may equip the public with knowledge to select quality nutrition programs for weight loss responsibly. Second, it may encourage the wellness and fitness community to reconsider the practice of providing clientele with non-personalized meal plans for weight loss, which are not usually designed by accredited dietetic professionals. Third, this study may benefit dietetic professionals by opening the lines of communication between the wellness community and the dietetic community regarding standards of care, and protecting the public by dispelling harmful and erroneous nutrition advice.
