Your body's calorific need depends on a variety of factors like gender, age, weight, height and goals in your weight loss journey.
Here's a simple guide on what you can keep in mind to ensure you're getting the right amount of calories you need per day.
Healthline states that, on an average, a woman who is moderately active and within the age of 26–50, needs to eat about 2,000 calories per day to maintain her weight. If you're on a weight loss journey, you need to consume 1,500 calories per day to lose 0.45 kg of weight per week.
Men, on the other hand, who are active and aged between 26–45 need 2,600 calories per day to maintain their weight and 2,100 calories per day to shed 0.45 kgs per week.
