Our expert says:
Your BMI = 23,2 which is already excellent. If you reduce to 57 kg your BMI will be 21 which is below the ideal. Your body will resist you forcing it to lose weight so it may switch off its weightloss mechanisms. Eating a very-low-energy diet instead of a moderately reduced energy diet of about 6300 kJ/day will depress your metabolism even further. It is necessary to ingest sufficient energy so that you body does not get the message "starvation". It is also difficult to obtain all the nutrients you require for good health like vitamins, minerals and dietary fibre if you reduce your energy intake too drastically.
