hope that isn't a dumb question ... I've never really had to count calories before now. I'm 5'1, small frame.

You can start with one of the numerous calorie counters availble online. My favorite is freedieting.com. From their it's all about personal tweaking depending your metabolism and activity level. Good luck!

I am also new to calorie counting and had the same question. The freedieting website has been very helpful! Thank you.
