Dear Sameshni
In general adult women are advised to reduce their energy intake to 1500 kcal (6300 kJ) per day to lose between 0.5 and 1 kg per week. Your present BMI = 28 which is above the normal range. To get back into the normal range with a BMI of 24, you would need to weigh 56 kg, which represents a loss of 9,5 kg.
