i suppose it also depends on who you are, and how your body works. i have a really fast metabolism. if i'm hungry, i literally start to get chills.
i'm not as intense as other riders here, but i do bike often enough. i cut lawns for summer job, and i used to do weight lifting while attending school. during weeks like that i'd consume between 4000 - 5500kcal a day. i'm 5'8", weigh 125lbs now (lost weight from stopping the weight lifting). counting calories seems pointless to me, but i'm sure it's a big deal for those with slower metabolisms.
