I'm at a very fat 260 right now at 6ft tall. I want to loose a good portion of pounds, but I still have some notable muscle mass that I would like to keep. How do I burn that much fat, while still being as large muscularly as possible?
For training I would go with High Intensity Interval Training to boost your metabolism, and you can also add in some Low Intensity Steady State training to burn additional calories. Weight training can also be a good way to burn calories and the increased muscle mass will help you to maintain/improve your appearance as you lose weight.
The best way to maintain as much muscle as possible would be to pay very close attention to your diet and to make the transition gradually. If you take extreme measures to lose weight then there is a good chance that some of that weight will be muscle.
Hope this helps.
I am a huge fan of the carb backloading it has really helped me lean up when I want to. Very easy stuff. Read up on it.

I've been trying to keep my calories in and around 2k, that sound about right?
No job at the moment, but I'm about to go back to school where I back/walk a lot with a good bit of wait on my back. So the majority of the time I'm not sedentary and on an average day right now I'm jogging a mile and a half each day. No gym access for the next two weeks, so right now its pretty much push ups, sit ups, lunges, etc. afterwards.
Start your day off with 1 hour of fatburning... ideally on a stair mill. if all you have access to is the road then take Tom's advice with the walk/run Interval training. Run 1 minute and walk 2, and repeat for an hour. And do this before you eat breakfast. the only thing you should have before this is some Amino Acids and coffee.

I just log what i eat with an app on my phone, and stick to my macro goals for the day. 40.40.20 carbs protein fat. I eat enough cals to slowly loose weight. Its a really easy method for me and the easier it is, the more likely you will stick to it.
Cut down on your carbs, calories, and fat and up your protein levels. Incorporate plenty of cardio into your workout routine.
Right now I'm in a body conditioning class at college, and not be a little girl, but it kicks my ass. I burn 400-500 calories easy just working out with the instructor, not to mention what I do on my on. (The class is broke into stations: cardio, weights, and coach workout) So right now I don't eat to super strict rules, I just don't eat stupid. Lean meat and veggies, and I don't freak out if I have mashed potatoes every now and again. That being said, I do avoid things like white bread, and white rice. I always hear it's an issue of calories burned vs. calories taken in, and I exaggerate my calorie count so I'll burn a little extra to make up for it. So right now with a weird schedule, I might only take in 1100, but burn almost all of that. Am I under eating?
