I disagree. If fat loss is the goal while sparing protein loss as much as possible then protein intake is the most important nutrient to check.
As Lyle says, set calories, set protein (1-1.5 g/lb should be sufficient for anyone), get EFA's, fill in the rest with whatever you run on and respond to best.
