  • I don't count my calories.. hmm, maybe I shouldn't even be answering... but one thing I can recommend is getting a good Women's Health magazine or something similar and seeing sample menus. Some of them even have sample menus for a month -- it will give you an idea of how much food/calories are in meals.

  • Figure out your BMR
    http://www.bmi-calculator.net/bmr-calculator/
    This tells (essentially) you how many calories you would burn if you did nothing all day.
    Good Luck
