Hi julieboolie, now this is NOT gospel because there are always individual needs to be considered. But, as a GENERAL, to maintain current weight, given a moderate amount of daily exercise, caloric req. is APPROXIMATELY 1,752. Like I said though, this is ONLY a generalization, NOT a prescription. ;)
