Default How many calories do you eat a day?

This is a question for everyone, Im just curious

I have been eating between 1800-2000 calories a day for about a week now, my nutrionist gave me this calorie level. Im happy with it and Im slowly losing weight.

1200-1500 a day, when I'm being good, although I don't count calories strictly at all (eg. I count most vegetables as zero and often over-estimate how many calories something has) so it could be more or less than that. I've been looking at labels since I was 14 though, so I have a pretty good idea of what's in most foods.

I think if I had an active job I would have more, but I spend most of the day sat around, really only exercising when I go to the gym.

Anywhere from 1200-1800. I eat more calories on days I'm exercising and getting a lot of activity, less when I'm being slug-like.

I'm aiming for 2000 right about now. I'm tall and I'm fat, so, it's a conservative place to be at.
I'm setting my sights on getting under 200 pounds. I'll reevaluate after reaching ONEderland!

I vary from 1100-1300, and feel quite satisfied. I do not exercise vigorously (shoulder and knee injuries), but I do do moderate cardio, weight lifting, and dance.

Weight loss journey started 12/28/2009 - Current Mini-goal:

Mini-goal #1 (300-270) reached 2/28/2010
Mini-goal #2 (270-250) reached 6/3/2010

I started at 1800 and continue to lose on that. I exercise pretty intensely 5-7 days a week and unless I'm at work I rarely slow down because I have 2 toddler boys.

Next Goal - 167.0 pounds (BMI 27) 88.5 pounds lost
Lovin' the Paleo diet. Meat, veggies and more energy than ever.
Success! A bit more to lose, but I met my big goal.
