How Many Calories Should I Eat?

One of the popular questions I get asked is: How many calories should I eat to lose/gain weight?

And really the answer for everyone is going to be different. What I have always suggested is to start somewhere!!!

My best recommendation to anyone is to begin at 2000 calories then track your weight for about 7 to 10 days. This will allow you to find out if you are gaining or losing at that caloric level.

All we do from there is adjust according to our goals. If we want to gain weight we slowly add calories and if we want to lose weight we slowly decrease calories.

Here I have provided a simple sample 2000 Calorie diet for you all. It’s plain and simple and covers all your nutrition requirements including plenty of Fibre also.


Oats – 60g
1 Medium Banana – 120g
Frozen blueberries – 70g

1 Large Apple – 140g
Small handful of Almonds or Cashews – 20g

1 Wholemeal Mission Wrap – 71g
