I am sharing a great table from Emeals for calculating your daily caloric intake. This is a general guideline to use to make sure that you aren't consuming too many or too few calories in a day. Remember, you must EAT to be fit, just make sure it's REAL food! Avoid sugar and anything processed/refined. The chart below gives estimates for the total number of calories you need each day. If you only do light physical activity associated with normal daily life, like cooking and walking to the mailbox, then choose the “not active” calorie range. “Somewhat active” means that you spend about 30 minutes per day walking quickly or some other form of exercise, and “very active” means that you spend 40 minutes or more exercising every day.
