You can take my advice like a grain of salt. I'm not an expert nor am I good at recommendations but I'm just throwing my opinion out there anyways. I believe the minimum in calories a male should consume a day is 1,500. Supposedly you should have a 500 calorie deficit between your exercise and your intake. I don't know if you've plugged your exercise and goal weight into SparkPeople yet or not but you might want to start with that - they are pretty accurate!
Also, this is the calorie for weight loss calculator that I think is most accurate out of the 4-5 I've tried if you want to take a look for an estimate: www.freedieting.com/tools/calorie_calculat
