Dear Lebo
In general adult women are advised to reduce their energy intake to 1500 kcal (6300 kJ) per day to lose weight. Reducing your energy intake even further can be counterproductive because your body may switch off its weightloss systems if it is starved. A very-low-energy diet can also make you too tired to exercise and exercise is one of the most important factors in promoting weightloss.
So stick to a balanced low-fat diet with an energy content of about 1500 kcal per day and do at least 30 min of cardio exercise every dayBest regards
