The number of calories that mantain your body weight depends on many factors - your age, muscle mass, your activity level, etc. If you eat a healthy, balanced diet, and eat when you are hungry and stop when you are full, you needn't be concerned with your caloric intake.If you are trying to lose weight you should exercise regularly - try to walk/run at least several miles a week. Weights are great because your metabolism increases as your muscle mass increases. Power yoga is a great way to exercise too (there are lots of ways to exercise, find what works for you. there are videos that teach you how to breakdance, for example. Go on Google and search and I am sure that you will find something cool).99% of the diets out there are useless. If you feel that you need to follow some sort of structured eating plan look at the exchange system used in diabetic diets. Eat 4-6 small meals a day and whenever you eat carbs. eat protein or fat as well. You don't need to cut carbs - just eat whole wheat, brown rice, stuff like that (instead of white flour, sugar). Veggies need to be a big part of your diet. And don't be afraid to pair them with some lo-fat dressing (fat is an essential part of your diet - however, watch your portions and try to use mostly unsaturated fat, which you can find in nuts, oils, etc.)If you are unsure of portion sizes, use measuring cups and/or a food scale until you get used to what the correct portions look like.Above all, focus on being healthy. Love your body no matter what you look like. If you exercise regularly and eat nutritious food, you will feel better mentally and physically.
