Currently, I'm sticking to 1800 calories or under. This may seem high, that's because I have quite a large weight and I will reduce my calorie intake as I get smaller, and my calorie demands are lower.

Everyone needs a different calorie requirement, depending on their body weight, muscle mass and level of activity. You can use various website, such as to work out the best calorie range for you if you want to lose, gain or maintain your weight.

My maintenance calories is 2100, so I just took 500 calories from that.

Hmm thats a pretty cool calculator. Cheers for the link.

It says I need about 2600 cal / day to maintain. I've been aiming to eat less than 2000 per day, but not really counting extremely closely. I figure 3 decent meals a day with light snacks, or 2 meals if I eat fast food is close enough to keep it down.
