How to burn muscle through dieting?

I'm way to bulky from my early 20's weighlifting. Any dieting or other tips to burn muscle?

How long has it been since you stopped lifting? Your muscles will eventually shrink from disuse. I wouldn't advise trying to starve them off - you will end up looking gaunt.

Trust me, I haven't lifted in 2 years and I can go in to the gym and bench 250+. I'm real strong and haven't done anything but running.

I'm with Absinthe, preserve that muscle to your best ability. ANY weight loss program will cost you some of will often be amazed how MUCH!

What is your height and weight?
