Our expert says:
Your daughter's present BMI = 24, 4 which is still within the normal range (18-25). If she loses 8 kg then her BMI would be close to ideal, namely 21.9. To lose weight she needs to basically change her lifestyle. She can reduce her energy intake by eating an 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), and increase her energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life)for 30 min a day. While she is on the ‘Weight loss’ site, she can read about every aspect of slimming (the dangers of diet pills, slimming aids, psychological aspects of slimming, etc) by surfing on this site.
