go here --->> http://www.bmi-calculator.net/bmr-calculator/harris-benedict-equation/

and find out how many calories you require daily to keep your current weight.

then you have choices to calculate how much less... or more... you should eat in order to reduce / increase your weight.

So I need 1922 calories to stay at my current weight? Not that it really matters. I haven't gained any weight in years. I eat total crap, drink a lot of beer and do no exercise. :D

lol at 38 my metabolism is still screaming along. I eat what I want as much as I want and I think I've gained 5 lbs in the last 10 years. That's with moderate to no exercise.

btw my BMR was 1943.8 and my average daily calorie intake was approx 2700 daily.

Wow, this is so far off the reality that it's funny.

According to this, I need 2692 calories a day to maintain this girlish figure. If I ate that much most days, I'd look even more like Jabba the Hut.

Maryn, who bears a fairly strong resemblance already

Supposedly I should eat 2229 calories a day to stay the same weight. Ha! If I ate that much I'd pack on weight like crazy.

I spent weeks keeping track of every bit of food that I ate, averaging 1400 calories a day and running 3-5 times a week and didn't lose a pound, not one little bit of weight.

Stupid calculator's full of it...

I've never weighed myself in my life. The only time I've been told how much I weigh is when I get my usual well-woman check-ups at the local surgery.

As long as I can pack more cake in, I'm-a keep on eatin'. :D

This says if you're a girl who is five feet tall and weigh a healthy sixty pounds at the age of 19, you need 1114 calories a day to survive.

Now it's saying the same thing for if you're a seven foot tall 300 pound twenty five year old man, you need 1114 calories a day to survive.

I don't even know for sure how tall I am.

I'm definitely female though.

At least, I will be after the op.
