Our expert says:
I worked out your BMI = 21,9, which is ideal for your height, so please don't try losing any more weight. You may have made a mistake when calculating your BMR or misunderstood the instructions. The BMR is after all a measure of the amount of energy you require just to keep your body processes ticking over without even walking 2 steps down the passage. The BMR is usually added to the amount of energy you require for physical activity including everyday things like sitting in the office, etc. You then subtract 500 cal from the total of the BMR plus your energy required for activity to obtain the number of calories you need for slimming. Basically as an adult woman this would amount to an average of between 1500 and 1700 cal. In your case, however, I would strongly urge you to NOT to lose more weight as then your BMI would be too low. I did not know that your weight was normal to low when you wrote to me before, so my recommendation is that you can use the diet BUT eat large portions of all the permitted foods so that you do not lose more weight.
Please take care.
