Our expert says:
Depends entirely on what you do during the day and eating. Someone with a desk job might use only half the calories compared to a builder, for example. And of course, if you exercise for an hour, you increase this by perhaps 500 to 1000 Cal a day as well. So there is no answer. It all depends on lifestyle and exercise routine. Short of actually measuring this (which is expensive), you can pretty much tell whether you're in balance or not, because if you're gaining weight, then you are taking into too many calories. If your weight has stayed the same for a long time, then you are probably in balance. So the short answeris that if you are gaining weight, then you need to cut back on the intake and look to exercise to increase how much you burn.
