I think it will be a lot of trial and error until you figure out what your body likes. I was plateauing at 1400-1500, so I tried eating 1600-1700, and the weight started flying off! And then there are members here who need to eat 1200, or their scales won't budge. Our bodies have different needs depending on how we metabolize food. I wish I had a more straightforward answer for you.
Finding the right calorie balance is so intimidating... X_X
