Calorie intake depends on your size already. I follow slimming world but when I was calorie counting I was recommended about 1500 calories but I was over 300 lb and that was aiming to lose 2lb a week. Also depends on gender, fitness, lifestyle, if you go on something like Myfitnesspal it will help you there.

There are many online calculators to calculate this. These calculators will take your age, weight, height and gender into account, as well as your daily activity level and goal(s). Literally googling 'calorie calculator' will give you more of an insight as to how many you need per day.

If you want to lose weight, find the number of calories you need per day to maintain your weight and then subtract that by anywhere between 250-500 calories.

Hope that helps.
