    There are a lot of variations on this. Search for a Basal Metabolic Rate calculator as a starting point. Note that once the starting point is found, some tweaking through trial and error will be required. Everyone's physiology has some amount of variation.

    Check this article, scroll down to Calculating Metabolic Rate and Caloric Intake

    Also, an excellent article can be found here.
