In brief: Varies..
There isn't an absolute number but nursing a singleton requires an 200-500 calories a day.
Make sure to increase your fluid intake and remember that your body will produce breastmilk first, take care of you second. Eating a well balanced diet will help keep both momma and twins healthy.
