Recommended calorie/kilojoule intake per day

Hi Doc

What would my recommended daily calorie / kilojoule intake be per day - 39, female, BMI 20, moderate daily exercise, to maintain weight.
Have tried to get this info on the web, but it varies between 4500 and 7500 kilojoules, its just confusing me.
Thank you.

Dear C
Seeing that you are an adult woman with a low BMI, I would recommend 8000 kJ per day, otherwise you may start losing weight.
Best regards
