How do I know how much to eat?

Knowing how much to eat requires that you have an idea of how many calories your body needs. It also depends on whether you want to stay the same weight or perhaps lose a few pounds. A quick calculation like the one below can help you estimate the calories you need to consume each day to achieve your weight goal. Simply fill in your current weight and perform the calculation.

*This number should not be below 1,200 calories per day, unless you have been instructed to consume fewer calories by a doctor.

Consume the GREEN number to maintain your current weight.
Consume the PURPLE number to lose one pound per week.

It takes 3,500 extra calories to add one pound, and it takes limiting or exercising off 3,500 calories to lose one pound. Health professionals generally recommend losing no more than two pounds per week.
