Calories on Keto?

Hi guys, should I be aiming for a calorie total? I have naturally landed at about 1700.... I am at 19gr of carbs for the day and have not felt hungry. MyFitnessPal recommends 1500 for me..

    Calorie intake depends on how much you weigh, combined with how tall you are, gender, and how much you have to lose.

    MFP has me at 1410 calories a day, so I try to stay around 100 over or under. I have a range 1300-1500, sometimes hitting 1600s.

    It you lose weight at 1700, I would stay around there and not drop until you hit a plateau. Also once fully fat adapted, the appetite decreases naturally. A lot of people find themselves fuller for longer.

    Good luck!

    Thanks, I did the calculations, 1700 is apparently fine for my weight.
