If you set up your goals properly and told SP how many calories you burn on average each week, or if you let SP come up with an amount you should burn, your nutrition tracker reflects that. So if you burn 400 calories working out, you shouldn't add 400 calories on top of your maximum caloric intake. Yes, the more exercise, the more you need to eat, but you don't necessarily "eat back" the amount you burned. If you find yourself exercising more and burning more calories than what your fitness tracker recommends, you can go into fitness setup and manually enter the amount of calories you want to burn each week. Then the amount you need to eat will increase.
I hope I answered your question haha.
Also, weight loss is 80% nutrition and 20% fitness, so you could technically eat healthy, stay within your ranges and not exercise and still lose weight, but exercise has a number of benefits and can really help you reach your goal quicker.
