A calorie deficit on steroids will more than likely just help you keep LBM while shedding fat. 1500 cals is like 2 meals worth of food. My god, you must look like Skeletor himself.

If you are using an anabolic why would you consume MAINTENANCE calories???
You can't go on WHAT it GENERALLY says re calories, as everyone is different and you need to do what is right for YOU. If you want to gain lean mass, then you need to be having up to (if not MORE) than 500 calories ABOVE Maintenance levels.

and if U increase a lot your calorie intake? what happen?
on steroid you put more mass and less fat, but what's the limit.
example. mantainance: 3000 kcal. if you eat 4000 you put a lot of mass. but if you eat 5000, this 1000 kcal more will be FAT? or there is a better fraction of calorie used to put muscle?
500 kcal above your mantainance: approx 90% muscle
1000 kcal above. 70% muscle 30% fat
2000 kcal more 60-70% muscle. 30-40% fat?
or it will be
500 kcal above: 90% muscle
if I go to 1000, the 500 more will be almost all fat?
I write very bad, i hope U understand the question
in other word i would to know if Roid improve in % the energy stored like muscle, or there is a very low limit (example 500-1000 kcal).

Steroids don't increase energy stored in muscle; they CHANGE HORMONAL LEVELS to make for a more anabolic environment (simply put). I suggest that you do more personal research.

i don't know if I explaine it in the good way.
I'm not a silly boy who don't research.
Testo and some other hormone, are responsable of the different use of food in the body (t3, adrenaline response, insuline and so on).
When I increase one (or two of this, for example Steroid + T3 or Steroid + insuline) I improve the capacity of body to utilize food to make energy or muscle mass.
BUT IN MEDICINE...there is something who work in easy saturable way, and something who work in (only pratically) unsaturable way.
So TESTO or ROID usually in almost 99% of body make his work in one of this way.
I'm not considering in this (but it counts) that roid increase the capacity of work, the intensity of work and so on.
So, i don't speak about individual. i know that some people can eat 1500 more than their mantainance and stay lean, and someone eat 400 more and get fat. but Testo or Roid work Approximally in the some way, less or more in different individual.
And i ask if The effect of testo on calorie partitioning is very Easy to saturate (I.e 500-1000 kcal) or is effect is good even with a lot of calorie.
ps i'm not stating that Testo have the same effect in different person
