How Many Calories Should You Eat? Estimate Your Starting Point with THIS EASY Tip.

Updated: Apr 5

Here’s how to figure out how many calories you should be eating in 60 seconds.

Not to be confused with how many calories you can eat in 60 seconds. That would be a very different altogether.

ANYWAY, here’s the formula:

  1. Take your bodyweight in pounds.

  2. Multiply your bodyweight by 14-16 to establish your maintenance range, OR, multiply your bodyweight by 10-12 to establish your fat loss range. For example, if I weigh 200 pounds, my maintenance range would be 2,800-3,200 calories per day. My calorie requirements for fat loss would be much less, ranging from 2,000-2,400 calories per day.

  3. Eat within that calorie range for the next 2 weeks.

Be aware that equations like this are usually not 100% accurate and should serve as a starting point. Track your bodyweight along with your average calorie consumption, assess the trend every 2 weeks, and make adjustments in 250-calorie increments as needed.


Keep in mind that losing greater than 1-2 pounds per week can often be a bit overboard unsustainable. Find that sweet spot for slow and steady progress.
