Our expert says:
I presume you are a woman? According to Prof Tim Noakes in his book 'The Lore of Running', the normal body fat percentage for adult women is 24%, so if you are a woman, your body percentage is below the normal range. I am not surprised because your current BMI = 18, which is just still within the normal range, but so low that you basically don't have any reserves if you should be exposed to illness or stress. To achieve an ideal BMI of 22, you would have to weigh 67 kg! So do try to eat more esp of healthy foods.
