Dear Lilly
Generally speaking it is recommended that adult women who are moderately active should reduce their energy intake to 6300 kJ per day to lose weight. Such a decrease in energy intake should cause a loss of 0,5 to 1 kg per week, esp if combined with exercise (e.g. going for a walk, cycling, swimming, gym, etc) for 30 min a day.
