Experimental Methods (Proposed)

I submitted the project for approval at Kickstarter yesterday. They review all submissions before publishing them to make sure the projects fit within their terms of use. While waiting for that to approve I thought I would go ahead and share my intended methods.

Please feel free to comment if you have any recommendations for improvements that I can make. There's still time to make changes before the KS project goes live. Once it does go live I'll try not to make changes to the experimental methods unless there is a really strong and necessary reason for doing so.

Without further ado, here's the pertinent section from the Kickstarter project description.

Over the course of a 6 week study period I will maintain a food journal for each participant as well as daily supplementation of resistant starch in the form of Bob's Red Mill Unmodified Potato Starch. Each participant will follow a unique supplementation regimen as described below:
a) adult 1 - 2 TBSP mixed in water and consumed on an empty stomach
b) adult 2 - 2 TBSP mixed in water and consumed on an empty stomach, split into two equal doses
c) child 1 - 1 TBSP potato starch plus 0.5 TBSP whole psyllium husk mixed into yogurt (to prevent complications from too much psyllium, will start with 0.5 TSP and slowly increase to the full dosage amount over first two weeks)
d) child 2 - 1 TBSP mixed into yogurt
