Our expert says:
If the person has lost weight there will be a change in her basic metabolic rate and she should be able to ingest 2000cal a day without gaining the weight back again. On 1500 cal a day one could expect to lose0,5 to 1 kg per week. The 1500 cal a day is based on a 'modern' lifestyle which is mainly sedentary anyway. If you start doing strenuous exercise every day (jogging, skipping, cycling, etc) then you may require slightly more energy to compensate.
