If I understand right you are saying you burn 1722 calories a day and your weight loss goal has you at a calorie restriction of 964 and that only allows 758 calories you can eat ( 1722 - 964 = 758)? This would have you losing almost 2 pounds a week, which is good. Moderate loss (1 to 2 pounds per week) is a much healthier alternative to 'crash' diets where you starve yourself.

You can increase your activity/exercise to allow you to eat a reasonable amount, not be hungry all the time, and still acheive your deficit goal. If your metabolism is really 1722 per day then an intake of 1100 should be acheivable. 1722 - 1100 = 622 so that leave 342 calories that you need to burn through exercise.

If my assumptions are incorrect then just plug in your real numbers to get the correct answers. Hope this helps. Let us know if you have more questions.
