How many calories should I have?

Ok well for over a month I've been on a modified diet... every now and then I have Burger King or Pizza but it's pretty much been tuna and chicken. I'd say I've been having 600 - 1,000 calories a day, now that I use bread with the tuna it's more around 1,000 calories. I've gotten used to it, and have already asked if it's safe to have 3 cans of tuna a day and the answer I got was no. But is it safe to have 3 tuna sandwiches a day with fruit on the side using different types of bread from day to day? Right now I went from 194 lbs to 172 in the month but I heard I may be burning more muscle than fat... my ideal weight would be 150 lbs ( I take creatine and workout daily so exercise isn't a problem )... I just want to lose the gut, thighs, and other areas that store fat. I know I won't have the exact desired results but will a 1,000 calorie diet help me lose fat or will I be losing muscle too ( even on the creatine with working out ) ?

    Eat only when hungry and not more than three times a day with nothing, except water, in between. Take plenty of uncooked food, vegetables and fruits, preferably 50%. Chew each morsel 32 times to activate ur body system to signal hunger and fullness.

    Take light exercises and brisk walks regularly preferably twice a day.

    U will achieve much more than what u r planning to do and that too in a reasonable period. Do not be in a hurry.
