Our expert says:
Seeing that your present BMI = 23,8, you are not actually overweight. You could reduce your weight to 71 kg to achieve an ideal BMI of 22, but only if this does not send you into overdrive and back into the Yo-Yo dieting mode. Please stop see-sawing with your weight as this is really going to cause problems down the line because it will damage your metabolism and prevent future weight loss. Don't try for 68 kg as this is below your ideal BMI and is not really sustainable. I would like to suggest that you start doing regular exercise instead of trying to diet all the time. If you are not careful you may even develop an Eating Disorder - some of the symptoms are already in place - obsession with dieting, regarding yourself as fat when your weight is in the normal range, preoccupation with food, guilt about eating, etc, etc. This is why I suggest that you join a good gym and forget about dieting and start enjoying life which at the ripe old age of 22, is still pretty sweet.
