Alright Doc, let me translate all of this for you since you probably need some guidance.
1200 calories is far too low for a 245lb dude. It's probably too low for a 120lb woman. Go to the nutrition forums and do some research on proper diet and caloric intake.
You are 18. Test levels don't start dropping until after the age of 25. You are at your peak NOW, put it to good use.
Read the rules of the boards before posting. Pretty sure you're supposed to be 21 to even post here.
Research before you leap. I bet you know the specs front to back of the next car you're gonna buy... Treat your body with more respect than that.
That is all.

So why is it bad to be in a caloric deficit while working out? I'm 6'1" 245 at 25% body fat I need to lose a lot of fat and gain a lot of muscle. I've been a fat lazy ass for 12 years and I'm to the point where I've lost 15 pounds in about 3 months. I'm a long way from being in good health. I would appreciate some knowledge from you folks who have been training for years.

By the way, you're starving your body at your current rate of intake. When your body starves, it holds on to and stores stuff that it thinks it can use in the future for survival (fat).
I'd look at a 40/40/20 ratio with twice your current calories as far as intake goes to start and adjust depending on progress and overall feeling. If energy runs low, up carbs a bit and so forth. Learn the difference between good and bad fats, complex and simple carbs, meal schedules and so on. Stay away from white rice and bread. There's so much more... Just study and adjust your routine to fit your mood. Most everyone here is willing to help, but having thicker skin will make it easier to digest what's being thrown your way.

Def wouldn't go below about 2500 calories to cut, better the weight comes off moderately and you be able to feel good and sustain your diet then crash and give up. Count your calories, eat clean sources of food, and if you're not squatting, start. If you are, squat deeper than you have been.
Squatting has no bearing on weightloss necessarily, but if you don't have a good medical reason not to, you should be doing it. And deadlifting. They put hair on your chest. Even if you're gonna shave it off, at least you have the option.
