twice daily and the P2 group were given apple cider vinegar doses of
0.192mL/100g twice daily. Treatment is given for 4 weeks. Weight and
leftovers food are weighed during treatment period. The final weight
was analyzed with the Kruskal-Wallis test and the weight difference was
analyzed with the one-way ANOVA test followed by the Turkey post hoc
There was no difference in final weight between the 3 groups (p=0.55),
but there was a significant difference in weight before and after treatment
between the control group and the P1 group (p=0.001) and the control
group with the P2 group (p=0.000).
