How many calories should I eat a day?

How many calories a day?

One of the most popular questions I get daily

I say every human needs to consume around 1800-2200 calories a day to live.  If you are a smaller person you can eat less, if you are a bigger person eat more, if you are highly active person eat more as well.

A quick and easy way to estimate this daily caloric need is to divide your weight in kilograms (bodyweight/2.2) multiply by 35 and minus 550

I weigh about 165lbs/2.2  = 75kg  *35  = 2625calories    -550  = 2075 daily calories

My calorie goal is 2075

You have to move to burn calories, you have to eat well to burn body fat, then rest and repeat
