Try carb cycling as well, upping them when you're lifting and lowering them when you're doing cardio. Actually you'll want to switch your calories back and forth anyway. Find one of the calories calculators on the net, type in your info, and you'll get a good idea of your maintanence calories. You should eat below them when you're doing cardio and trying to lose fat, and of course eat above them when lifting weights. I found that my maintenence calories are about 2700, so when I do HIIT I eat around 2000 and I aim up to 5000 when I'm lifting now. You don't have to be exact of course, but it's nice to have a rough estimate of how many calories you need for your goals.
