Our expert says:
The SA Recommended Daily Alllowance (RDA) for energy at present uses a general figure of 12000 kJ for all adults. The USA RDAs differentiate for different ages and between men and women: The US RDA for energy for women between the ages of 11 and 50 years is 9 200 kJ per day. I would be inclined to use the American value, which is quite a bit lower than the SA figure.
