Default Flexible dieting and EC: carbs bad?

Quick and easy question - Bryan Haycock claims carbs counteract the effect of ephedrine, and you should use a low carb diet otherwise you may not lose fat. Taking into account CICO, is this really true? I just want to do a flexible, high carb high protein diet but use EC for the muscle sparing properties.

Is not true.
Being in caloric deficit, that's okay.

Default Haycock's article/post

His line of reasoning is that insulin prevents lipolysis. This is like Gary Taube's type stuff, by this line of logic we shouldn't consume carbs at all on a diet. Wonder what Lyle thinks of this and the mechanistic reasoning... I mainly just want EC for the muscle sparing output

The author himself comments:
"If the total calories are low enough, carbohydrates will become a minor problem"

At the end of the day the calorie deficit is in charge.
If you are in calorie deficit = you will lose fat
