The right amount.

It is mind-numbingly simple. If, on average, you eat fewer Calories than your body needs you lose weight. If you eat more you gain weight. That is science and it is as true a law as gravity and evolution. Everyone is different so your daily need won't be the same as your friends or spouse. You can find out what your needs are by experiment. You can increase your daily needs by exercise and muscle improvement. There is no such thing as 'middle-age spread'. It is the result of years of modest over-eating or drinking. Don't allow yourself the excuses of 'heavy bones', 'it's genetic' or 'it's hormonal'. That's self-deceptive tosh. Remember your Physics laws - "Energy can neither be created nor destroyed". If you eat and drink little enough you cannot put on weight.
