Our expert says:
Your BMI = 20,1 which is already below the ideal for your height (for an ideal BMI of 22 you would need to weigh 59 kg), so you certainly do not need to lose any weight. Generally speaking adult women of 18 and older require 2100 kcal per day, so your calculation is correct. According to prudent diet recommendations protein, carbs and fats should provide 10%, 60% and 30% of your daily energy intake. This translates into 53 g of protein, 315 g of carbs and 70 g of fat per day. Because SA uses the metric system, food labels generally express the energy content of foods in kilojoules. In kJ your daily energy requirement would be approx. 8800 kJ.
