intake assement on what a 23 year old, 5'7 adult male that weighs 170lbs should be taking in?

He's a college student or was a college student and is strictly interested in losing weight and not gaining muscle, so I'm trying to figure out how many calories he burns daily.

I don't think he has an all that vigorous lifestyle that burns a lot of calories, he walks often.

everyone's different... depends a lot on body composition, BF%, assessment of all activities, lifestyle, etc.

BUT... when i was losing (150 lbs, thank you very much) i mostly stuck to bodyweight-times-twelve. at least it's a good starting point and you can judge progress & augment from there.

to the OP, start at BWx15 and adjust from there if he wants to gain or lose weight
