Your present BMI is already practically ideal at 22,8. For an ideal BMI of 22 you would need to weigh 54 kg, which is as you say just 2 kg lighter. You can check out the energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss', ‘Balanced diet’ and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet) on this Website and compare it with what you are eating at present. Because you do so much exercise you can basically use larger portions of the permitted foods to ensure that you don't starve. The diet will provide sufficient carbohydrates which you require as fuel for your exercise. The problem with the so-called 'fat depots' which in women occur on the breasts, hips and buttocks, is that they are often genetically determined. If other women in your family have large buttocks, then you will find it very hard to shift that fat no matter how little you weigh. Ask Fitness Doc for a set of exercises that target the buttocks that you can do to tighten up this area.
