Depends: I do not know UR age. If you want to lose weight 1200-1500. If you R skinny 1500-2000 should be sufficient(if you R average height and size). Adjust to keep weight constant (unless loosing or gaining desired). Important to realize that if you eat too little your body will conserve burning calories and make you fatigued. Still need a balanced diet and some exercise daily, At least keep active.

About 2300: This is an average for an average height and average weight woman with regular exercising. If you just sit at a desk all day and drive the rest of it, you'll need less. But if you are moving all day and walking quite a bit, you'll need more.

Daily meat.: As a daily staple, we certainly do not require meat. We can get healthy proteins from other, more lean sources such as fish, chicken or even soy. Meat should be limited to once weekly.
