Find a BMR calculator online and add 300-400 calories. That's how much you should be eating. Your BMR is how many calories you would burn if you laid around 24 hours per day. Of course, no one does that so, that's why you need to add 300-400 extra calories.

actually most bmrs online will give you a activity level to choose from & base your cal intake on that.
