If you've ever needed a simple way to figure out how many calories to eat, well here it is.
Like always, remember to keep it simple.
Figure out a realistic number for your Goal Body Weight, then multiply it, and you're on your way.
Want to up the ante' a little more?
Calculate your protein number at 1g per pound of goal body weight and work to hit that number as well as your total calories.
The remainder of the calories can come from carbs, fat, more protein, or even some alcohol (don't overdo it). Unless you're a fitness competitor, bodybuilder, or have a related medical condition, you don't need to worry about carb/fat ratios.
Focus on hitting your calorie and protein numbers every day rather than getting bogged down by minutia.
Also, I get it; tracking calories can be a pain in the ass, but if you don't like the way you feel or look, why leave it to chance?
Track the calories for 90 days until you get good enough to get a feel for estimating meals correctly.
Then you can wean off the counting and transition to mindful eating.
