1 doctor agrees

In brief: Depends

Calorie requirements depend on activity, stage of life, and general health.
Many calculators try to estimate caloric needs, but these are mostly inaccurate since everyone is different. See your doctor for help. Also, this website is useful for some guidance: http://www.Freedieting.Com/calorie_needs.Html.
