Your body weight is 180...plug it into the formula:

180 x 11 = 1980 calories you need to maintain your weight.

20% reduction in calories = 1584 calories
15% reduction in calories = 1683 calories
10% reduction in calories = 1782 calories

Your maximum caloric intake for the first week is one of the above numbers I listed. Don't weigh yourself until the end of each week, and on Sunday, use your new body weight x 11 again, and figure the 10%, 15%, 20% calorie reduction.

As you lose weight, your body needs less calories to operate, so you have to readjust ONCE a week - daily would be too difficult. It's not just your calories, it's your meals you have to readjust and track, too.
