I'm having trouble with how many calories I should be eating in a day.
I eat about 2000 calories a day and burn off 900 at the most, on a good day.

I'm trying build muscle in my legs.
How much should I increase it by to be able to build the muscle I need?

Depending on your muscle mass will be your intake for example terry crew is a very muscle man his intake is 9000 a day Michael Phelps is about 10500 a day  yours if you want to build muscle  is I would say 2500 and burn about 500 a day or less don't burn to much unless yiu want to lose weight not gain weight (fyi muscle weighs more than fat)
