To keep your weight the same, you need to take in as many calories as you use. The average human body uses about 60 calories an hour when at rest, and a superb athlete can use more than 1,000 calories an hour while exercising. When you are starving or trying to lose weight, the body compensates by using less energy. So the minimum number of calories is about 1500. Maximum is about 7000 (an active lumberjack in cold weather.) Most people want to lose weight, while others want to gain weight. Therefore there is a different number for different people, depending on how active they are and whether they want to stay the same weight. A typical man of 195 pounds with a moderately active lifestyle wanting to maintain the same weight will consume about 2400 calories per day.
