Hi, I am trying to find out how many calories, grams of fat, carbos etc. I should take in per day. I am 16, 5 feet 0 inches 160 pounds. Please let me know.

If you are a girl, then to maintain your weight you would need about 1429 calories with 179 grams carbohydrate and 48 grams of fat. However, a healthy weight range for a girl your height is 100 to 127 pounds. You may continue to grow till you are 18 so plan to only reduce 1429 calories by about 220 calories a day as you need nutrients to continue to grow.

If you are a boy, then you need about 1495 calories a day with 199 grams carbohydrate and 53 grams of fat. However, a healthy weight range for a boy your height is 100 to 127 pounds. You will continue to grow till you are 23 so plan to only reduce 1495 calories by about 295 calories a day as you need nutrients to continue to grow
