Calories, Nutrients: There are formulas 4calculating how many calories/day someone needs 2consume 2maintain certain weight. They take into account person's height, current weight & activity level. Websites that also help ppl track what they eat, nutrients they're getting, etc., usu. Have their own formulas (e.g., mynetdiary.Com, fitday.Com, livestrong.Com's myplate). But do learn about nutrition, eating balanced diet.
