Dear KKK
Your present BMI = 27 which is above the upper level of normal. For a normal BMI of about 24 you would need to weigh 57 kg and for an ideal BMI of 22, you should weigh 53 kg. It is always better not to add fat and sugar to vegetables, but if you stick to 1 teaspoon of the Flora and 1 t of sugar per 1/2 cup of pumpkin, then this will not increase your energy intake to such an extent that this will sabotage your weightloss efforts.
