Use GLM. One between-subjects variable (Treatment), one within-subjects variable (time). Look at the Time X Treatment interaction. If it is sig, one group improved more than the other.

Hi list,

I have a trial study where there are two groups (placebo and intervention).

STEP 1. At the beginning of the study I have collected a quantitative measure (weight) for each participant in each group.

STEP 2. Then, we have given a special diet for all participants of the intervention group and a normal diet for the place group.

STEP 3. After 10 days we have measured their weigth again for all participant in each group.

ANALYSIS PLAN a) Apply paired-samples t-test to evaluate the difference OF WEIGHT (before-after) in each group separately.

QUESTION I need to know if there is a difference of weight between both groups.

What statistical test I have to use?

I was thinking in General Lineal Model for repeated measures but I have only two measures.

PROBABLE SOLUTION I migth calculate the difference of weight (before-after) for each group and then to evaluate this difference using a simple Student t test.

Thanks in advance,
