Depends on your diet. Plus those are just calories per serving so it depends on serving size. You can say bacon fat has 9 calories if you only eat a gram of it. Think of total daily and work the foods you want to eat into that daily total.

Depends on your goals, metabolism, lifestyle, genetics, etc. Only you can figure that out. Start tracking, and if you want to lose weight reduce till you lose weight, if you want to gain, add till you gain weight.

food... not to be a smart ass but thats all i can say, realatively low to the point that they would be good for trying to lose weight.

Fruit is good for you but its simple carbs, Veggies are low in calories, besure to eat plenty of lean meats so you get the protein as well. A good tracking software program is crosstrainer 6 you can get a free full function trial for 10 days then it's about $40 if you decide to buy. ( I have no connection to the company except I have been a user for 5 or 6 years)

that's kind of pointess. Your metabolism has a maintenance level, which is the number of calories required to stay at the same bodyweight. Eat less = lose weight, eat moe = gain weight. Simple.
