1200 calories is a stupidly low number of calories for the day. Is there a way I can change the number of calories I am supposed to be allotted for the day? I know I can earn more through exercise, but a base of 1200 is not realistic.

1200 is not that low. I'm a 237 pound man and I'm supposed eat 1800 for 2 pounds per week. On most days I can barely get to 1500 due to the low calorie dense foods I eat. I rarely get hungry even on a major deficit. The key is high volumes of low calorie dense foods. Find a few veggies and fruits that you like and fill up on those with your meals. If you are feeling hunger on a diet chances are you will fail. That means it's not sustainable for long term weight loss goals and you will give up. There's not much need for exercise while on a deficit but it absolutely helps.
