Calorie Intake and Calories Burned???

Ok so I a silly question, but I honestly just don't know the answer to it.

I'm logging everything I eat on Loseit.com. For my bmi I sure consume 1,825 calories a day. This is so I lose a max of 2lbs a week. My question is should I eat the calories I burn that day as well or not eat those burned calories? I'm assuming that I shouldn't eat the extra calories that I've burned, but you know what they say about someone that assumes. It make an "ass" out of "u" and "me." lol

If loseit.com does not include exercise in your original calories and it adds calories when you add exercise to it, then it is designed for you to eat a portion of them back in order to avoid " starvation mode" and to stay above your BMR. 

If, the app already includes exericse into the equation and does not add calories when you add exercise, do not eat the back.

Thank you

Quoting mcginnisc:
