answers, please??

if i exercised more, i'd have to eat more, wouldnt i? wait, no.
my body would use up fat stores. only after fat stores are used up will the body eat muscle, this is, of course, after the initial 1-3 days of initial shock starvation mode. then, the body switches to using fat stores.

i'm so bad with numbers. i really dont get the deficit thing. okay, so, if the 12 calories per lb thing is correct, then, i need 1500 calories a day. if i eat 500 less, that's a deficit of 500 calories a day. if i burn an additional 500 calories, that's a deficit of 1000 calories. am i correct?

Definitely go for weight bearing exercise. This is just a theory, but I'd say that if you do resistance training and take in adequate protein, you'll rebuild whatever muscle that you're eating up.

Also, you might want to look into doing a lower carbohydrate diet, as carbs raise insulin levels and drive storage of fat.
