    How's your metabolism? I'd say 1700- 1800 calories should be good, but if your metabolism is better than mine, make it higher. You should be eating enough calories to drop 1 pound a week while maintaining your muscle mass and strength.

    I would say start at around 2000 (167*12) and adjust cals until you are losing about a pound a week. It is better to start of too high than too low IMO.
