When watching what you eat to get quickest weight loss results and exercising regularly, should you be as concerned with calories as with fat content? For successful weight loss, how many grams of fat/day are necessary for a girl age 16?
Well check it out for yourself, but you will have to pretend you are at least 18 for now. Go to the Healthy Body Calculator. It will calculate your calories and fat grams. Would not suggest weight loss just yet as your body is still growing. Calories count, but so does fat. The number of calories you need depends on your height and current weight. In addition, 30% of your calories should come from food sources of fat.
