Working out calorie intake?

Hi guys/girls.
I appreciate that this has probably been asked a million times before so I apologise for that. But whats the best way to work out how many calories you should be eating if your trying to cut fat and lean out abit better? 
Also what is a realistic weight loss weekly should you be aiming for? Never done a 'cut' so to speak before and don't want to go in with any unrealistic goals that will make me quit within a week. 
Thanks in advance.

    Obviously the bigger you are the easier it will be to lose weight (physiologically speaking of course). Studies show best target to retain muscle is 0.7% of bodyweight per week. You can do up to 1% though if you don’t mind losing a little muscle.

    Calories will be specific to you unless you are counting correctly (ie weighing your food) then you are best off just eating around the same foods every day and doing weekly weigh ins. If you’ve not lost weight just decrease what you eat slightly like a sandwich per day for example.

    If you are weighing food google for the Harris Benedict formula. It will give you a rough starting point and then you can tailor from there.

    Best of luck bud.
