question...

I know that cutting back on calories causes weight loss, because you're eating less than you were before. But that having too few calories messes everything up, because too low and your body starts eating itself and your metabolism drops to tortoise-like proportions.

But what happens if I'm consuming about 1200 calories a day, AND doing weights and cardio? I've estimated that in the end, I come out about 400-600 calories net (calories consumed - calories exercised = net). I know that the weight training builds muscles, and that both cardio and weights keep up metabolism, so is it enough to counteract the fact that I'm having way less than 800 calories net a day?

If someone has any ideas or can point me in the right direction, that would be great!
