I don't think 1600 is too low, but I'd try varying your intake from day to day so that 1600 is your daily average over the week. Try 1400 for 2 days, then 1600, then 1800, then repeat. Do you know what your protein/carb/fat ratios are? you might want to play around with those too and see if it makes a difference. What kind of food are you eating and how often? That also makes a difference

Calculating the calories burned is a very inexact science unless you are wearing a personal monitor. Many machines and classes inflate their "burn" claims so that they will be more popular. Some people burn calories slower than other do. Lots of variables!
