Write 11 pages thesis on the topic systemic review. People have come up with different ways to lose weight, some of which are legit, and others not (Cawley and Price, 2013). Information has been posted in the internet and is available to all. But, is it that easy to find? In a bid to discern whether weight loss has anything to do with money as has been proposed, a research needed to be done.
A financial incentive involves motivation of an action by monetary gain that would not otherwise happen in absence of the money. So many sources in the internet were available to use and it was necessary to carry out a research to determine the trustworthy sources from which the information could be obtained and thus the research objective. In order to provide trustworthy sources from which this information can be obtained.
The search was conducted in the worldwide population because one country would be limited in the information it has, and that all over the world, financial incentives would be a motivator, suffice to say that what causes one to put effort to lose weight in one country is the same everywhere (Cawley and Price, 2013). Six databases were searched including CINAHL, Medline, PsychInfo, Science Direct, Web of Science and Pub Med. The phrase searched within the databases was ‘Financial incentives and weight loss and adults’.
The databases were chosen for different reasons. PubMed (national library of medicine) was chosen because it is a national institute of health and thus contains a wide catalogue and variety of articles on health, which works for the health related topic. It is also widely used and well known (Cawley and Price, 2013). Science Direct was chosen because it contains a large pool of information, is a very broad and commonly used database containing a wide variety of different scientific disciplines including health.
