I am 13 year old.  I am not sure of my height and I want to lose weight.  I would like to know what is the average calorie intake for a 13 year old?


Answer

In one day, the average 11 - 14 year old girl needs  2200 calories.  Your exact size, body composition and level of physical activity influence your calorie requirements. Visit My Pyramid to learn how to distribute your calories into the food groups.  Please see your doctor before starting a weight loss program.  Read about weight loss for teens at About.com.
