How Many Calories Do I Need?

When I started counting calories, I did a little research, and settled on 1500 as my goal.  Although that is less that what I have been eating, it wasn’t a big adjustment.

I’m wondering if I still need to eat fewer calories.  I rarely get more than “a little hungry”.  It’s possible I’m not burning enough calories sitting in front of my laptop.  So how many calories would I need to survive?

Don’t think I’m going to go nuts and starve myself.  I’m actually planning on staying at 1500 for now.  I should have my elliptical on Wednesday, then I might need a few more calories.
