Try the myfitnesspal app or website. It will tell you how many calories and nutrients you should eat depending of your level of activity, what you weight and exercise goals are, and your weight and such. It is also a food and exercise journal and log, really helps you keep track of your diet.

Look up the formula called the Harris Benedict equation. It works well. :-)

Make an account on livestrong.com for myplate and they will help you out. They tell you how many calories you need depending on your weight, exercise, and how quick you want to lose the weight. It's great!
