Dear Honey
Your present BMI = 27,2 which is in the overweight range. To get back into the normal range you should weigh 64 kg (i.e. a BMI of 24). To achieve an ideal BMI of 22 you would need to weigh 59 kg, thus a loss of 14 kg in total. If you are not an elite female athlete, then according to Prof Tim Noakes, your body fat% should be approx. 24%.
