Smile High calorie allowance

Hi
Can anyone tell me why my calorie allowance is so high. It seems to be about 1000 more than I thought was realistic for a 53yo man. 1500 seems a reasonable amount given that I want to lose a few pounds via the low-carb route. Is calorie intake calculated differently in the States!

1500 calories is not a lot, especially for a man. Your height and current weight are considered also.
