    Expert Answer

    Hello, friend. For your case, I will help you. But in order to give your an individualized suggestion, I need more your info such as your GFR, age, gender, weight and so on. So I cannot give your specific answer.

    How many calories do you need in a day? It depends on how active you are. Studies have shown that most people need between 30 and 35 calories per day for each kilogram of body weight (2.2 lbs). If you do not move around much, are very overweight, or are over the age of 60, you may need fewer calories to keep the same body weight.

    If you are under age 60, use this formula to find out how many calories you may need in a day:

    Divide your weight (in pounds) by 2.2, and then multiply by 35

    If you are 60 years old or over, use this formula to find out how many calories you may need in a day:

    Divide your weight (in pounds) by 2.2, and then multiply by 30

    You may need to adjust how many calories you eat based on your weight goals. Some people will need to limit the calories they eat. Others may need to have more calories. Your doctor or dietitian can help you figure out how many calories you should have each day. Work with your dietitian to make a meal plan that helps you get the right amount of calories, and keep in close contact for support and follow-up.
