How many calories do seniors need? First of all, you will have to understand that as an adult your nutritional requirements are quite different from your younger counterparts. A woman, who is not very physically active would require somewhere around 1600 calories in a day. Women who are moderately physical active will need about 1800 calories and women who are very physically active would need around 2000 calories in a day.

On the other hand, a man would need 2000 calories in a day. A somewhat physically active man would need 2200-2400 calories in day, and extremely active men would need 2400-2800 calories in a day.
