Default Quick question on calorie restriction and activity

Hello,

Restarting (for the last time...!) a weight loss program.

The software says, based on my lifestyle, I should be eating ~3000 cal/day.

It says, to meet my weight loss goal, I should cut back by 800 cal/day.

Now, I'm burning 900 cal/day in exercise though. Does this mean I should eat 3000 a cal/day, and consider the exercise burning my "calorie restriction", or should I restrict my diet to 2200 calories, AND do the exercise as well?

Thanks,
