Our expert says:
A weight of about 56 kg would probably be good, but because you are still growing, it is important not to use starvation diets to lose weight. You still need all kinds of nutrients like calcium, iron, protein, etc to help you grow. If you do need to lose any weight then make sure that you see a dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area) for a well balanced diet and do plenty of daily exercise.
