It seems like all everyone talks about are calories this, and calories that. It would probably be nice to know how many calories you should be consuming each day in order for your body to do it’s everyday functions, such as breathing. For this, you will need to find out your BMR, basal metabolic rate. Here is a link where you can calculate your BMR http://www.bmrcalculator.org/ and then it provides details below on how many calories are burned each day based on your activity level.
Keep up the good work everyone!
