    Using a periodization approach to calories is the best way to do it to keep your metabolism up. The amount of calories for each phase depends on bodyweight. Some use 3 steps (High, Medium, Low) while others use a more drastic 2 step approach (High, Low).

    It also depends on if androgens are used. With androgens you stand a better chance and preserving lean weight... so Low Cal days can be more drastic and/or frequent.

    As long as you are eating clean you can loose weight. One of my good BBer friends told me that if you want to loose weight, eat alot of clean calories. You are tricking your body, by letting it think you are getting plenty of calories, fat, carbs etc, and it "releases" the fat so to speak. If you are trying to loose weight, I would maybe slack off on your carbs, eat plenty of <a href="http://www.allsportsnutrition.com/listproducts.php?style=category&value=PROTEIN" target="_blank">protein</a> and keep your calories about 2000-3000 per day still. If you aren't worried about loosing muscle, then you can go less than that. I personally, don't let me calories dip below 2000 a day even on a cutting cycle, I loose muscle big time..
    You will loose some muscle on a cutting cycle, but to minimize it, I would keep those calories up, and just watch what you eat. Lower your carbs, up your <a href="http://www.allsportsnutrition.com/listproducts.php?style=category&value=PROTEIN" target="_blank">protein</a> to 200-300 a day, fat about 20 grams a day, carbs, 100-400 a day.
    Just my .02 worth
