Yes, especially if you start out at a higher bodyfat level, well above your setpoint.

You can minimise muscle loss by limiting yourself to losing 1 lb per week (more if you are especially fat) or possibly even less. By following a particularly good diet, such as UD2.0, you should be able to lose fat exclusively.

lots of glutamine will help.. bout 5-20g a day depending on ur bodyweight and amount of muscle

Glutamine is expensive, though.

Glutamine is rarely worthwhile, particularly for the money, unless you are recovering from some kind of trauma.
