I've calculated the amount of calories I would need to maintain my bodyweight, and subtracted them by about 500. My question is this: Now that I've got the number of calories I need to consume to slowly lose and burn away fat, should I up the calories by a little bit to account for the calories I burn during the day, especially during excersize? I'd really like any help possible. Thanks a lot.

I can't find the calorie thing where it tells me how many calories I need to eat a day to maintain or lose weight?

It's up to you. If you are feeling hungry, then eat, as long as you have the calories to spare. You'll still be in a deficiet as long as you total equals roughly your goal for the day.

I do this all the time. Somtimes I'll get down to 1800 cals on some days and that's just not enough. Doing some cardio will give me about 200-400 extra cals of food I can eat.
