About Recommended Weight Ranges
We'd like to start by saying that 4'11" is a very small height. At this height it can be extremely challenging to maintain your healthy recommended weight. With so little area, every little pound over ideal weight is pronounced. It basically has nowhere to hide.
If you have a larger bust and buttocks, then we recommend that you use the large size frame in setting your fitness goals. What it 134 pounds is too high? You can always lose more weight once you reach your fitness goals.
How Many Daily Calories Do You Require?
103 - 113 pounds
To maintain this amount of weight, individuals generally require about 1339 to 1350 calories per day. However, if you are very active you may require as many at 1921 daily calories.
For those at about 1300 calories daily, this makes meal planning extremely challenging. Consider that most Grain Group selections contain about 100 calories per serving.
For example, a slice of bread counts as one serving. Calories in bread slices range as little as 35 kcals up to about 200 kcals for thick-sliced specialty breads. The common slice contains 60 to 80 kcals.
Keeping this in mind, the minimum recommendation from the Grain Group is 6 servings daily. If we opt for 50 calorie per slice bread, we're already at 360 kcals.
We only have about 1,000 more to work with for our other food group servings, and for our drinks and snacks. We can easily see the challenge.
And this is based on MINIMAL daily servings.
111 - 123 pounds
Women in this weight range will require about 1443 to 1450 calories per day in order to maintain this amount of pounds. Adding exercise - no matter how many daily calories you require - can allow us to eat a few more calories in our day. If you are highly active you may need as many as 2091 daily calories.
120 - 134 pounds
Women in this range require about 1560 to 1575 calories to support body weight - but may require as many as 2278 when at a highly active state.
Because numerous elements and situation influence body weight, these numbers cannot be set in stone. You may require more or less daily energy values based on personal factors. We provide this data as a pattern for setting weight loss and fitness goals.
