Ah yes, you're consuming about the same as I am; however, it's too early to say which of the two I may or may not be accomplishing. I'm mainly weight lifting, and doing low-intensity cardio (~20min). My pants are definitely a lot looser (maybe even a dress size looser), but my weight hasn't exactly plummeted.
I'm unsure of the accuracy of that statement though. Generally men gain more muscle mass when they consume 20x their body weight in calories, thus making it harder to achieve the calorie deficit needed to burn a considerable amount of body fat for energy (I don't think consuming 20x your body weight to gain muscle is highly advised for women though, yikes!).
But, if your calories are too low, you run the risk of breaking down muscle for fuel (especially if you do too much cardio).
This is a tough question. Many trainers will say something different. Hopefully an expert will chime in!
