    For maintaining you should definitely eat back your exercise calories

    MFP already has any deficits (if needed) built in, so as long as you've got your goals set up correctly, you need to net those cals - so you really need to eat back your exercise cals :) That's a nice, generous amount of cals, I'm sure you'll manage to maintain just fine, well done xx
