Go to and sign up. It's free and a GREAT site! When you do, go to the Daily Plate tab and enter in your weight. Then go to Calorie Goals, select your activity level, your height, weight, and how fast you wanna lose weight and POOF: the exact calorie goal. 


It's genius. And free. Gotta love Lance. 

I second Livestrong- it's a great resource. is also really good.
