Notes:
Calorie information: There are approximately 3500 calories in a pound. Women use an estimated 1600 to 2400 calories per day; men use an estimated 2000 to 3000 calories per day US government data [link url="https://health.gov/dietaryguidelines/2015/guidelines/appendix-2/" memo="health.gov Dietary Guidelines"]
Times to get to planets:
Neptune - 4380 days
Pluto - 3467.5 days
Uranus - 3102.5 days
Saturn - 2555 days
Mercury - 2372.5 days - even though it is close, you have to go slower to avoid crashing into the Sun
Jupiter - 2190 days
Venus - 450 days
Mars - 210 days
The Moon - 3 days

If you're planning space travel beyond our Moon, you'll probably be looking at some cryosleep. During cryosleep, you can work down some of your stored energy while moving across the solar system. This tool will help you plan how much weight to gain for your next mission.
