What is the daily calorie limit for a 120 lb. 17 year old girl?

 

Q. What is the daily calorie limit for a 120 lb. 17 year old girl?

 

A. Daily caloric intake also depends on activity level in addition to gender, age, and weight. The more active a person is, the more calories are needed to account for loss. The USDA recommends that 17 year olds consume at least 1600 calories a day and then more if active. Make sure to make half your plate fruits and vegetables for optimal health.
