Also agree with most of the above, P & D schedules seem to work for most of the forumites that have used it, and weight loss of course does help but needs to be sensible for your individual body shape.
Your height/weight figures are in the healthy range but are at the top end in terms of BMI so you probably could lose a few kilos quite safely.
I would suggest looking at your diet anyway and making sure it is a healthy one, cut out the processed foods, cut back the red meats and substitute with chicken/turkey breast & fish or even have a couple of vegetarian days per week. You will find this should have an effect on your overall body fat % which should then lose overall weight but without affecting muscle mass.
You need to make sure though that during the heavy marathon schedules you take on enough carbs and protein to provide the fuel and aid recovery.
