Ya, I've done it and had good success. That was a quite awhile ago. My father did it a year ago and dropped considerable weight. I don't recall how much he lost on the program, but afterwords it was a drastic difference.
I recommend this program, simply because if your goal isn't to be extremely muscular and lean, this is a simple way to - initially lose the weight and - maintain a good level of fitness without requiring a huge time sacrifice. Again, predicated on your statement about having a busy full time job. If I misunderstood and you want to lift weights, then I would recommend another programs.
Diet wise, I would calculate your daily caloric needs. Then create a macro breakdown that adds up to those calories. For example, a daily TDEE (total daily energy expenditure) of 2500 calories could be reached by eating 180P (720 calories), 250C (1,000 calories) and 85F (780 calories). I would then time my meals around workouts, having carbs before/after training.
Obviously, the tracking can be a tad tedious, but after a week you have a fairly good idea of what you are eating. Myfitnesspal has a great calorie counter.
