Continued from How Many Calories Should I Eat to Lose Weight?
To Maintain Weight: Multiply your weight in pounds by 15 if you’re moderately active (you do housework, gardening, and brisk walking – 30 to 60 minutes most days) or by 13 if you’re sedentary (you mainly sit all day, no planned exercise).
For example: If you’re moderately active and weigh 200 pounds, your average intake is 3,000 calories per day (200 x 15).
