How many calories do you need?

The number of calories you need to consume is based on gender, age, and activity level.

Roughly if you are a male with a sedentary life style (no exercise) you need to consume only 2400 per day.

If you are active (30- 60 minutes of exercise a day) you need 2800 per day.

If you are very active (more than 60 minutes a day) you need 3000 per day.

Roughly if you are a female with a sedentary life style you need 2000 per day.

If you are active you need 2200 per day.

If you are very active you need 2400 per day.

Now these are general numbers to maintain weight not to lose. To get a more precise measure use Harris Benedict Formula.
