    first mutiply your weight by 11 to determine you basal metaboilc requirement then mutiply it by one of these

    sedentary(sitting,school work)= 1.40

    light(short stroll)=1.60

    moderate(brisk walk or swim)=1.70

    strenuous(20-min aerobic activity)= 1.85

    your daily fat allowence should be 30% of your calories.
