How Many Calories Are You Supposed To Consume In A Day?

Postby Lucero » Tue Sep 12, 2017 11:34 pm

The minimum should be somewhere around 1800 ish... but what matters more is that those calories come from healthy foods, not fatty or sugary foods because then its just pointless. Instead of counting your calories, I would focus on eating healthy foods like salad, fruit, vegetables, etc. and avoiding the chips, ice cream, and cookies. With softball, I'm sure you can lose weight if you stay on a healthy diet.

Female minimum is 1200

Male minimum is about 1500 I believe. But being as active as you are I'd say 2000 should be the minimum because your body could go into fat storing mode.

to maintain, according to your height, weight, age and activity level you consume 1880. So if you are looking to lose weight I would eat from 1200-1500.

I used a calorie calculator from this website if you want to try it yourself http://www.freedieting.com/tools/calorie...

girls should eat 2000 calories boys should eat 2500 calories. the limit you have for burning off because of your softball thing should be 1500, but you may want to build muscle, by eating 2500 or protein and a lot of fiber to build muscle, muscle weighs more than fat so don't check the scale and let it control you. :)
