I would suggest 1200: You should not exceed 1500 calories per day unless you are doing some strenuous exercise.

Dietician: Daily calorie intake recommendations depend on current weight,ideal weight and level of usual daily physical activity. 1200 calories may suffice for an inactive person while 3000-4000 calories may be needed for a very physically active person. If you're overweight a dietician can determine your personal ideal weight, a healthy diet and daily calorie advice and crtique your eating habits.
