I'm pretty sure you're body does burn more calories when you have more muscle (I can't find any source, but I have read this before). That's why if you plug in you're body weight into a calorie calculator you get an estimate base on weight alone (not figuring in muscle or fat); so I don't worry about cutting down more than 500 calories because you won't be sacrificing as much muscle as the Bros at the gym would have you believe.

and you can start training for a marathon with the munchies. If anything, it might be good that you're eating a little extra. But, don't overdo it
