Our expert says:
You don't mention your height so that I can work out your BMI, but generally speaking adult women who are moderately active can ingest 2000 kcal per day and to lose weight need to reduce their energy intake to 1500 kcal per day. So it is correct that the reduction in energy intake to achieve weightloss is 500 kcal per day, but the 1660 kcal a day you are ingesting is already close to the recommended 1500 kcal/day, so I am not sure how you are going to reduce your energy intake even further and still eat a balanced diet. Exercise is also important and you need to do at least 30 min of aerobic exercise a day to promote weightloss (brisk walking, jogging, cycling, swimming, rowing , skipping, etc).
Wishing you a happy Festive Season
