Defining Energy Needs, Females: Small Size Body Frame
The following weight chart displays the caloric needs for a small-framed woman based on height and activity level.
Keep in mind that charts are intended to be utilized as a pattern for setting weight goals and that what you weigh should never be set in stone; the suggestions or recommendations should also be reasonable so that they can be achieved in a healthy manner.
Setting Fitness Goals in the Area of Fat Loss
Example: The Daily Calorie Needs for a woman with a small frame who is 5'5" tall and leads a Moderate Lifestyle needs an average calorie intake of about 1853.
If the woman is active she requires about 2100 calories per day for her maximum caloric needs.
Now here is where the issues with weight charts fall into place.
Let's call our lady - Betty. The number of calories necessary to support Betty's weight will increase based on her food intake as well as her activity level.
If Betty is doing laundry, shopping and dusting - she will burn fewer calories than if she were hiking or rowing a boat.
This is the pivoting point where weight in concerned. This is why it's so difficult to tell Dieter A that if they do this and that, then they will weigh exactly this.
Even the foods that we eat are difficult for caloric definition. While one Tropical pineapple contains x-amount of calories, another pineapple grown in another area of the world will contain another.
Even fruit as simple as apples contain different caloric values based on location grown, species and size of specimen.

If Janice is about five feet in height and is at a moderate level of activity, she should weigh between 104 to 115 pounds to be within her recommended weight range based on this particular data.
However, let's say that Janice has been blessed in the booty and breast areas of the body. She will now require different consideration as to her ideal weight. One that is at 105 pounds may be far too thin for her. In this situation, it is the lovely contours of the body that come into play and which have an impact on body weight.
