Hello Azka, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Calculation of ideal body weight in adults is not based on age and weight anymore where this calculation is based on height compared to body weight.
Because you did not include your current height, it cannot be calculated what is the ideal body weight for you. You can try to calculate yourself using the body mass index reference which is ideal for adults in Asia, which is 18.5 - 23. For the calculation, you can use the formula in the form of: weight (kg) / height (m) x height (m) .
For the number of calories needed, in general adult men need 2,500 calories per day and for adult women need 2,000 calories per day. But the number of calories needed also depends on other factors such as activity, age, and also certain diseases suffered.
Therefore, for the calculation of the number of calories that is most suitable for your needs, it is highly recommended to consult further with a specialist nutritionist directly because there are enough factors and things that need to be considered and assessed during the determination. In addition, also to determine how the recommended diet for you.
While regarding height gain, this also depends on your age, intake and how genetic factors that exist in you. In general, in men, height gain starts at 11 years, peaks at 13 years and stops at puberty. Because you are now entering puberty and the height of height has passed, your chances of increasing your height are quite small.
Even so, you are still encouraged to eat enough nutritious and balanced food every day, especially maintaining adequate vitamin D, regular exercise, and also get enough sleep every day at least 6-8 hours a day.
I hope this helps.
