I focus on cardio because it lets me burn the calories to be able to eat around 2,000 calories. I feel deprived at 1200 a day. I try to burn 800 a day by doing an hour of cardio. I also put in some weights 2-3 times a week and reduce my cardio a bit. I plan on adding more more weights as I get closer to goal weight, and certainly after reaching it.
My cardio is some running, but mostly elliptical and rowing. I get some strength out of that too.

Check your settings again......1,500 NET (1,500 + exercise) is the default minimum for men.
Not feeling hunger is not really a reliable indicator. https://community.myfitnesspal.com/en/discussion/10569458/why-eating-too-little-calories-is-a-bad-idea

I personally do 30 minutes of cardio and 30 minutes of weight/strength training. I have about 60-70lbs to lose. I have lost 35lbs so far by eating better and exercising, but I hate cardio. I'd rather lift weights, but I know to lose weight it's a combo of things. I want to be healthy and that's my long term goal.
Diet is very important in weight loss. 300 calories of a veggie will have a different affect than 300 calories of a snickers bar.
