    I am usually on 1200 but have been bad recently so am having a week of 1000. Best thing to do is to Google BMR calculator and see what your BMR is

    It changes everyday.
    One day, it'll be as low as 1,000, and then next it'll be as high as 2,200 calories (especially on days where I'm very active).

    I don't try to stick to a specific number anymore, but I do like to know how many calories I eat a day (OCD thing I guess). Overall, I eat what I want, because I'm trying to maintain my weight at the moment. It's taken me a few weeks to realise that I don't care about losing any more weight, and that I shouldn't be dieting.

    I'm like Marshkipan, I range from about 1000 to 2000 a day, I average about 1300 a day at the end of the week. I do two to three exercise classes a week and lose on average 2lbs a week.

    I was just thinking about posting this and noticed you already had!

    I'm aiming for around 1300 a day, it's only day three for me and doing okay so far!

    I think it depends a lot on how much weight you have to lose as to what amount of calories you should aim for.
