Less than you need.: You must figure out your basal energy expenditure and subtract about 300 to 500 calories from this to determine your daily caloric intake. Add to that, the amount that you burn doing exercise. You can calculate this by using this link: http://www.Mdcalc.Com/basal-energy-expenditure/.
