Default Question if this is right diet for me

I see there are several book options. Heres the deal: I'm a 33 year old male weighing 241 at a 29% body fat. I train martial arts 2-3x per week and workout 4 days per week in gym. I know he says lower bf% is better to do this diet, but why? If goal is fat loss, can I use this diet? The rapid fat loss seems a bit extreme and unsafe for hormones/mood. I'm looking to drop 35-40lbs of fat, but at the safe time. Any advice on which one to pick?

Use RFL until 15% or leaner. UD 2.0 is a last resort sort of diet.

Half-way measures don't get very far. You can only do one thing well at a time. Trying to gain muscle while losing fat will result in failure.

Get to 10% bodyfat first while lifting weights heavy 3x a week with reduced volume. Two weeks maintenance. Bulk up slowly (1 lb weight gain per week max), focus on getting stronger, measure body composition changes often.

Off the top of my head, 2 reasons why UD2 is not appropriate for people in your position:
1) There are much easier (read: less stringent diets) ways of losing weight when in your condition - no need to go so extreme
2) Calorie partitioning - lean people tend to partition calories more towards muscle than fat cells and this is relevant during the carb load periods on UD2 which result in major overeating.

I agree, RFL is tough. I tried it once and didn't make it past day 9 or so. That being said, the principles of RFL are sound and you can incorporate them into a less extreme diet, i.e., not as long. I'd also pick up a copy of Guide to Flexible Dieting.

Good luck.

RFL will interfere with your training.

Well since January I have lost 15lbs mainly low barb and reduced calories. I want to lose roughly 25lbs of fat by the end of June and just want to stick with one method of getting there...
