BMR or Basal Metabolic Rate is the number of calories your body needs daily in order to function and be inactive-think digestion, blood flow and organ functions. Once you add activity, you have to increase your calories in order to offset that activity and to avoid " starvation mode"( our bodies think it is starving and begins to burn lean muscle mass and store fat).

BMR: 1708

Maintenance while working out 3-5 days per week: 1708*1.55=2647

To lose 1 lb per week: 2647-500=2147

Your ideal calorie range while working out 3-5 days per week is 1708-2147 calories per day to lose 1 lb per week.
