It can work....but it is brutal. You can still lose weight without needing to go that extreme though.
Ud2.0 is more less spawned from body opus. Rfl is another take on the psmf. Ud2.0 is a much improved version of body opus. With the added benefit of a forum with the author to help troubleshoot.

Thanks for the help guys. I'm on day three and feel fine. I've decided on three workouts per week from the following templates: 1) pushes: squats/presses 2) pulls: deads/cleans/chins/snatch. I'm going to go low volume high intensity. I'm going to also try to walk around a lot.

From what I gather, that's what one does to maintain muscle mass on a low carb, low calorie, aggressive fat loss program.

Thanks for the help!
