The total number of calories that each meal should be in order to lose weight or maintain a healthy weight, really depends on a variety of factors.
If you are significantly overweight and trying to lose weight, you should determine the number of calories you should consume in a day by figuring out your BMI or body mass index. Then determine how many pounds you would like to lose and how to safely go about doing so. This may include a healthy diet and exercise program that works with your body to lose weight.
If you stay at the healthy range of 1500 calories a day, this means that you should consume no more than 250-300 calories per meal – barring you eat 5-6 meals a day. Eating smaller meals several times a day can help speed up your metabolism and cause you to lose the weight you have been longing to lose.
