What amount of calories should a 14 year old girl eat per day?

Depends

Calorie
That number will vary depending on height, body frame ( bone structure and muscle mass) the amount of daily activity and genetics. A taller more muscular active teen will need and be able to consume more calories daily. There are many apps that will help you calculate your basic caloric needs to maintain your weight as well as for weight loss and weight gain.

How many calories should a 10 year old eat per day?

Calorie intake

Calorie
There is no definite answer for this question. Every person has a basal energy expenditure (just being alive) and energy used in activities. Children who are growing need some calories beyond the total energy expenditure and people who are dieting need a few calories less. A very active 10 year old may need >2000 calories a day while a sedentary 10 year old may only need 1000 calories a day.

How many calories should someone who is trying to gain weight eat per day?

It depends

Calorie
It depends on how much you weigh and how many pounds you want to gain.But as a general rule if you eat more than your BMR,that is the number of calories you burn daily,which depends on your weight,height,amount of activity daily.So it is easy anything in excess of that will make you gain weight if you have a normal metabolism

Dr. Chad Zooker answered:

I'm wondering if I exercise 2 hours per day,how many calories should I eat to lose 3 pounds a week?

Bad plan

Calorie
2 hours of exercise per day is excessive and cutting calories on top of it will only lead to short term weight loss before your metabolism slows down for self preservation. At 41, you are also risking overuse injuries with that much exercise. You should aim for 1/2-1 pound per week and exercise smarter and more efficiently at higher intensity for shorter duration.

Dr. Lynne Weixel answered:

How many calories should I consume? I'm 17, 5'3 and 105 lbs, I eat about 1400 calories per day because whenever I eat more than that I feel bloated

Healthy food?

Calorie
As long as the calories are from nutritous food, that sounds okay. But it may be good to find out why you feel bloated so easily. See a doctor about that - perhaps remove or change or add something. Sources of calories are as important as number. So is exercise, rest , work and pleasure. Take care, live a balanced life style. Enjoy!
