Say, for example, if workout A and workout B over the course of the week account for the same caloric expenditure, then they will both produce the same end result. Ergo, neither one is either a fat loss or muscle gain tailored program. That aspect is the sole determinant of how you plan eat.
But anyway, i've had enough of going round in circles; but I honestly hope that your time here will open you up to a world of proper programming which will only serve to enhance your overall performance and physique.
I'll leave you with this for food for thought; one member here, JudoJosh posted a study done on crossfit participants which showed that 1 in 5 ended up with some form of injury due to improper programming. We know though, that XFIT works WRT fat loss/weight loss because of the metabolic demands of the programs. People who undertake these programs are typically looking for fat loss/weight loss + overall muscular development and the programs seemingly fulfill their expecatations, however what these people do not know is that many of the movements require great technical ability (snatches, cleans, deads etc.) and as they lack the skill to perform these movements with perfect form, this subsequently leads to injury. They also lack progression, planal balance etc. So my point is, although the participants might end up with the result they wanted, they could be left with a whole host of issues (postural, torn rotators etc.). Just because its a plan that works WRT fatloss, doesn't mean they go about it the right way.
While your plan may only be for 30 days, often those that steer clear of leg days anyway might feel compelled to think that they can maintain this program, thus ending up with the Johnny Bravo syndrome. I'm not disrespecting your suggestion because it deviates from the norm, as I try alot of programs (usually 1 per year just for fun) that are not considered normal, i'm saying its not optimal or developed in a good way.

I'm buying a wheel chair. Too much walking going on these days and not enough squatting. You can't do both, of course. I read on some online forum that the increased leg work will fatigue and overtrain them..Anabolic minds maybe?

When wanting to shed a few lbs I do a similar program as WayneD. HIIT 3x a week and lift 4x a week. Each can be performed in under 30 minutes. I utilize a low carb diet and work out in the morning fasted too. Using a program like this, the most I was able to shed was about 40 lbs. This was after I decided to quit eating for size and decided on overall health, stamina and strength instead of hypertrophy. If I let myself go a bit, I employ this to drop 10-15 lbs very fast.
It is full-body, utilizing multi-joint movements, so as Jiiggz mentioned one is prone to injury if he/she is not experienced.
Jiiggz: I've never been a fan of the X-fit system, but was wondering why the guy who started it quit utilizing the philosophy? X-fit is still big here in Oklahoma and there was a new X-fit gym that opened up near me. What I don't like about it is that unexperienced newbies take it up due to the commercialism of it and get hurt.
