OK, I set up my meals but I'm coming up short on the amount of calories I need to consume daily (~3000 cal.). Is that totally a bad thing? I mean, if I get enough energy from my meals and take in less calories than I need, can I lose body fat and gain muscle at the same time? Or is it a better idea to just eat 3000 calories outright? Only problem is there is more fat than I need in my diet already and if I add more food that means I'll probably be consuming more fat and I don't need that.

Those are lower-fat sausage anyway and besides, I need the protein.
