    How many calories do you all take in a day?

    Do you always eat all of your calories?

    I have been told to have 1700, but it will depend on your weight and activity levels. I went on to my fittness pal and it gave my a calorie intake lower that want my rosy c consultant told me! all diet are different! make sure you are not going too low - under 1000. hope that helps.

    I'm also on 1200 net calories. Therefore if I exercise and burn 300, I eat 1500. I try to hit my net of 1200 each day, and try not to be over by more than 25 :)

    calorie counting and low carbs
    My calorie intake is 1000 which for most people would be a bit low but I am 76 - weight loss slows down a lot in later years - am also on a lot of meds and disabled so the amount of exercise I am able to do is very limited as well.

    Each to his own and not starting too low either.....:D

    I don't have an exact number; instead I have a wide range:p

    I try to have around 1500 cals a day and that's what I have most days; but I set a range between 1000 cals and 2000 cals for those days when I'm not hungry vs days I go to a party or to a long run/intense workout.

    I never go under 1000 cals, so when I don't feel like eating the whole cals (what happens very rarely, like twice a year, hehe) I drink soy milk instead of water and I meet the minimum calories without effort.
