I feel like every video you post should be a sticky.

Help, I'm still a little confused after watching the video. When I calculated my calorie requirements I used the Harris-Benedict equation and multiplied it by my activity level (for light exercise) before than minusing 500 for weight loss. Given that I multplied my BMR by my activity level do I need to eat back my exercise calories??

I would say no if you have accounted for them in your calorie goal already.
Hopefully SideSteel will check in here and give you more information. I have never figured my calories that way so I don't know much about it. Have you used a TDEE calculator to figure it? This is the one that I have used. You might try it and see if your figures are close. Your TDEE would already include exercise.

Awesome video. I hardly ever use my additional calories, maybe 1 or 2 days. Didn't realize I should use the extra. With a 2110 kcalorie intake, I am averaging about 1700-1800 a day. In my first 3 weeks I am down 6.2 pounds and feel great and I have had compliments on the loss of overall body fat loss. I guess I would need the extra calories on my strength training days. Always good to know I have a cushion.
