    Hiya,
    You can find out how many calories you nedd here Calculate Calories Needed for Goal Weight
    With regards to eating back exercise calories, i'm not entirely sure but i wouldn't have a deficit that takes me lower then 1200.
    For example if i eat 1500 calories per day and i burn 400 calories through exercise i would eat an extra 100 calories to bring me up to 1200.
    1500-400=1100+100=1200

    Hope that makes sense.
    Like i say i dont know what the recomendation is but that's what i try and shoot for.
