Our expert says:
I am sorry to hear that you had such a serious gastrointestinal infection, but it does seem that this condition has assisted you to lose an amazing amount of weight. 46 kg is practically a whole person! Your present BMI = 25,9 which is just above the upper limit of the normal range (18-25). I would not recommend that you try losing another 14 kg, because with a weight of 53 kg, your BMI would equal 20,5 which is too low. The ideal BMI for adult women is about 22, for which you would need to weigh 57 kg. I am worried that you will develop nutrient deficiencies if you only eat once a day and have starved for such a long period of time. Your calcium and iron intakes for example, may be too low to respectively prevent brittle bones and iron deficiency anaemia. I would recommend that you have a medical checkup and ask the dr to monitor if you have any vitamin or mineral deficiencies. If this should be the case, then the dr will advise which supplements you need to take.
