Title explains it all. I want to know which test is the most appropriate to track weight loss / weight gain on a weekly basis in order to create a confidence interval, to see if my expected rate of loss/gain is in that confidence interval. It makes it easier to see if I'm stalling and have to adjust calories.
Some extra info:
- Measurements will be taken each morning, so no bias (although water
weight can be a bitch)
- Although there are 7 days in a week, I can't take a measurement every morning. Some weeks will have 7 out of 7, other 6 out of 7, ...
I'm not sure if the T-Test is the most reliable for this because the measurements are not independent. I'm also not sure about normality since it's only a sample size of maximum 7. Any idea which test is the most appropriate?
Thanks for reading
