Default Counting Calories while EBFing

I am 6wks PP(post partum) and EBFing (exclusively breast feeding). I am 5'4 I weighed 121lbs pre prego and gained 20lbs. I am sitting at 132lbs right now. I am now back at the gym after being cleared by my OB. I count ALL of my calories, both in and out. I have heard that lack of calories can affect your milk supply but can't seem to find any consistent info. Does anyone have any experience with this? My BMR is a little over 1400, EBFing requires 500, I burn 500-1000 calories a day at the gym, and I eat 1200 without restricting calories. I know I am in a deficit, as I should be to lose weight but what's TOO much while nursing?
