Need insights for calorie count

Hi,
It's been one month I have started my journey towards fitness.
My aim is to loose 30-35 pounds of weight in terms of weight
Mfp has suggested 1200 call each day.
But when I add my daily workout which is on average 300 calorie burnout, it allows me to eat 1500.
So I want to know what are my fellow ppl following for weight loss.

Thanks much.

    Mfp is designed for you to eat back your exercise calories. With 30-35 lbs to lose did you set your weight loss at a healthy 1 lb a week?

    I have set it to 2 lbs a week

    That's healthy weight loss for someone who needs to lose 80 lbs or more.

    Okayy... So basically should calorie consumption be 1200 or 1200 plus workout

    No. You should be eating the calorie goal for someone trying to lose 1 pound per week plus exercise calories.
