Hi there and thanks so much for posting this question

According to many nutritionists calorie count varies depending on many different variables such as height, constitution even genetics.

check your calorie counter here http://www.freedieting.com/tools/calorie_calculator.htm

I would suggest that at your age you are careful with changes in your metabolism. What is metabolism? Metabolism  is a collection of chemical reactions that takes place in the body's cells. Metabolism converts the fuel in the food we eat into the energy needed to power everything we do, from moving to thinking to growing.

If you want to lose weight The safest amount of weight you can lose is anything from .5 to 2 lbs a week.
You can learn more about BMI and see what it is for your current weight by checking out our Body Mass calculator.

If you want to lose some weight steps:

Nutrition: Speed your metabolism by eating 5 small meals instead of three big ones.
Eat a balanced diet with plenty of fruits, vegetables and protein. careful with carbs especially at night and sugars.

Cardiovascular: Exercise 3-5 times a week cardiovascular endurance (aerobic training)
Strength training: use light weights and lots of repetitions to improve your muscular endurance. The more muscular endurance the less body fat and the more toned you will look. You can find many of my exercises online: "michael gonzalez-wallace"

Again before you start doing any program please consult your doctor

the reason u should eat 5 or 6 small meals is when ur body is use to digesting food more frequently it speeds up ur metabolism when the food is digested ur body will use ur fat for energy thats y if u eat oly once or twice a day u actually slow down ur metabolism and ur body will store it in the form of fat..
