It does not sound high to me, unless you are petite.

I am only 5'4" and my recommended calories was 1500 (high end.) Taller (and younger) people usually get more calories, I think! (I am 37 BTW.)

You can tweak your calorie needs, just be careful. It is hard, or sometimes impossible, to lose weight if you are not getting ENOUGH calories.

Best wishes on your weight loss!

It takes your age, current weight, goal weight and activity level into consideration when it's set up. You can lower it if you want to through the change goals link on your start page.

I was just filling out my meal plan for the day using the "my nutrition" feature on Spark. I was kinda surprised that it was recommending so many daily calories for me. I don't normally eat that much in a day and thought it seemed like an awful lot considering I am trying to drop a few pounds. I usually aim for around 1400 and it is saying I think around 1600-1900. Anyone else think this is kinda high?
