    if goodle bmr, you can work out you bmr (cals you need to maintain the weight you are now) and then subtract 500 if you want to lose 1lb or 1000 if you want to lose 2lbs, i think thats how it works, it will tell you on the website anyways.

    I would say 1400 cals is ok for you but maybe you would want to alter your exercise routine, maybe do a dvd or 2 a week???
