To find out whether your body weight is ideal or not, it can be done by measuring your body mass index / BMI first. Normal BMI ranges from 18.5 to 23.9. BMI is obtained from body weight (kg) divided by height squared (m2). From the data you provided, your BMI is 16.6. This means that you are underweight so it is advisable to gain weight.
Regarding calories, adult women need about 2000 kcal of calories and can be obtained from daily food and drink. So that you can gain weight and reach your ideal, you can do the following tips:
Consumption of healthy and nutritious foods such as vegetables, fruit, tempeh, chicken, beef, eggs
Add calories to food for example with cheese, nuts and mayonnaise
Consumption of milk for weight gain if necessary
Eat more often
Consume juices or smoothies with chocolate or milk topping
Get enough rest
Exercise regularly by combining cardio and weight training accompanied by high protein foods
If you have difficulty determining the daily food menu, you can consult further with a clinical nutritionist.
