Well, no one can really tell you how many calories a day you should be eating. Based on the starting weight in your stats, some people could lose on nearly 2000 calories a day while others have to be much lower (maybe 1500). It depends on your body composition, your genetic makeup, your level of exercise, the business of your lifestyle, how/if dieting in the past may have affected your metabolism, etc...lots of factors.

Anyway, regardless of th enumber of calories you eat, I personally believe you should focus on whole foods. This means nix the processed junk. Go for fruits and veggies, beans and nuts, lean meats (fish, chicken, turkey breast, lean beef, etc.), lower fat dairy, and whole grains.
