How many calories should I be eating every day while trying to lose weight?

I’m female, 5’10”, about 148 pounds. I’m wanting to lose 12 – 16 pounds.

I started doing cardio exercise about 6 weeks ago for about 30 minutes 4-5 times a week.

P.S. I have a desk job 🙁 (Which is probably why I gained 6-8 pounds in the last couple years)

Thanks for the help
🙂

    So you do not go into starvation mode- atleast 1200
    So you don’t over consume- no more than 1500
    Be sure to measure portion sizes because, say it says 100 calories for 1 cup. Well you could mindlessly have 2 cups and be consuming double calories. Also, exercise for faster results. Walk on breaks, and start off slow with maybe 30 minutes exercise 3-4 days and slowly build up.
    Any more tips; lemme know(:
    GOOD LUCK!

    but about 1200 to 1500 calories a day, depending on activities and BMI.
