Just a random thought: to me 2,000 calories sure does sound like it should be enough for the average person on an average day.

For me, it's great to have a calorie number or % as a benchmark.

I feel trim and terrific - well I will eventually!

Also depends on body size are as well. If you're 5'0" tall it may be too much. I'm a 6'6" male and I'm on a 2,000 calorie a day diet. My wife is 5'0" and is on 1,200 calories a day. We are both fairly active and lose on average of 1 - 1.5 lbs per week

Our Doc put my wife on a 2000 cal a day diet so I joined it with her seeing as how I need to lose weight as well. So far seems like plenty of food for both of us.

We will see in a week how much weight comes off.

I would suggest using the "enter exercise" function and put in your average nights sleep and the remaining time as rest. This will give you a base line for calories burned. Then subtract 100-200 a day and this will give you some leeway for a larger meal or a day where you splurge a little.

Of course, there are some other factors involved... if you know there is an activity you do on a daily basis, calculate that in as well.
