You don't, really.

There are these dorky online calculator-things you could try, but really, what you're going to have to do is track what goes INTO your body, and watch how it affects your weight and your body composition.

Mostly guesswork for the most part. Once you get used to tracking everything you'll have a good idea as to what you need to do to gain/lose x amount of weight. In my case I need about 3000 to maintain and if I want to gain or lose I run from there..even though right now i'm 198 pounds which is a pretty cushy weight to be at for powerlifting.

it will change day to day as well especially depending on your job and trianing you do.

My rest day is very different to my hard cardio day in the kcal i go through.
