preserving muscle

I am interested in other’s opinions about how to prevent muscle loss while dieting (taking in fewer calories mainly). I have access to a treadmill and limited access to weights so I don’t know if working out will do more harm than good. Any general ideas on supplements and or workouts that will help melt the fat but spare the muscle - I am not interested in gaining during this time but some tips would help. thanks
