How many calories do you need?  Start with your resting metabolic rate (RMR), multiply your weight by 10.  Now, multiply your RMR by 20% for sedentary lifestyle, by 30% if you are fairly active, or by 40 if you are active.  If you are very active, engaging in competitive sports, multiply your weight by 50%.  Add the result to your RMR to determine the daily caloric intake to maintain your current weight level.
