Healthy diet: For your height, that may be a normal weight. Check with your doctor to see how your bmi (body mass index) looks on a growth chart. Muscle weighs more than fat, so if you are exercising regularly, you may have more muscle mass now. Don't go on a weight-loss diet. Just eat healthy foods, avoid junk foods, and continue to exercise. ...Read more

How many calories I should be eating a day to lose weight. I'm 20 years old a female. I weigh 136.5 pounds and 5'4.Working out everyday?

Depends: It all depends on how much you expend in activities. Do realize also that if your muscles start to bulk up, you may weigh slightly more even though you may be losing fat. Most people can do ok with 2000 cal/day but if your activities demand more, then you will need to eat more and vice versa. I do think weight training is more effective than simply aerobic exercise in weight reduction. ...Read more

It depends: Do you want to sustain your weight or lose weight? It may be best to consider weight loss since a 5'3" frame will have diffculty sustaining that weight over time without joint damage. Your calorie recommendations are extremes on a spectrum. I would suggest starting at 2500 carefullly counted for 2 months are drop by 100 every 2 months until you get to 1500. Return to 1800 when at goal weight. ...Read more

How many calories does a 28 year old woman who is lightly active need to consume to lose weight? I am 140lbs but wish to lose five

Weight loss math: To maintain your current weight, you probably need to consume about 2000 cal/day. A pound of fat = 3500 calories. To lose 5 lbs, you need to burn 5 x 3500=17500 cal. If you eat 1500 cal/day (500 cal deficit) it will take you 35 days to lose 5 lbs. More exercise (increased burn) helps. However, counting calories is hard. Most people underestimate portion size. Good luck. ...Read more
