- 26 to 30 kcals/kg/day for normal, healthy individuals with sedentary lifestyles doing little physical activity [12.0-14 kcal/pound]

170 (lbs) x 14 = 2380 Calories

According to the theory, you burn 2380 calories a day just "living" a sedentary lifestyle. Do you have more physical activity during the day?

Try lowering your calories to 2100 and give it a few weeks. Shoot to lose ~ 1lb a week. Are you lifting weights?

This is a rough example and takes trial and error. Keep an eye on the mirror and scale.
