    You can, but this is easy as hell. If you don't care about variety much (I don't, I look at food as fuel, nothing more), this works just fine and keeps things simple.

    If I had to make a similar recommendation, I'd say in even simpler terms:

    1) decide on your target daily protein intake - e.g. 150g
    2) decide on your max daily carb intake - e.g. 100g
    3) figure out how to hit 1) with fish and meats, while not exceeding 2)
    4) pad the rest of the daily calories with healthy fats (avocado, nuts etc.)

    Done. But the key here, which we don't like to talk about, is true consistency - the "no, I won't have that beer today"-type consistency.

    I'm pretty lean. I work out and currently eat whatever want.

    I want to kick up my results and add some more muscle.

    I'm going to try a diet of rice, chicken and broccoli. Eggs and protein shake in the morning. Tuna for lunch. Never dieted before, anything I should add or change?

    This is what I believe. If you do something you will not stick and it's just a temporary diet change or exercise blitz you will see results but you are setting yourself up for failure later.

    I don't see many people sticking to this diet once they achieve their goals and then they will see their weight just creep back on.

    The best thing to do is to just become hyper aware of everything you eat and your activity levels and incremental improve both in very small and permanent ways. Drop off the extra latte or snack in the day and walk down a set of stairs or the long way to the office. You just need ot get your body doing incrementally more than it was prior with slightly less food than it was getting prior and you will start to lose weight. It may only be 0.5 to 1 pound a month but that is actually how most of us add our weight. 6-12 lbs a year and suddenly 2-3 years later its WTF? Losing it that same way, slowly over time with such small changes is totally achievable and maintainable.

    I feel like that is a lot of food? Or at least a lot of protein shakes.

    this is the real lazy man's explanation:

    - Stop eating fried food, drinking soda and all that garbage

    - Do free weight training, do squats, go for walks or run

    the end

    ps also eat oatmeal and drink tea

    I used to think BMR would keep me thin. It helps but not to the degree some people imply.

    I stopped doing the ridiculous cheat day where people were saying that you should really stuff yourself one day a week.

    I have an even lazier way of eating, but getting enough protein.

    I get these 6 packs of canned chicken (already cooked but in can.) Each can has about 45.5 grams of protein.

    https://www.costco.com/Kirkland-Signature-Chicken-Breast-12.5-oz,-6-count.product.100334960.html

    And these giants bags of mixed vegetables which I keep in freezer.

    https://www.costcobusinessdelivery.com/Kirkland-Signature-Stir-Fry-Vegetables,-5.5-lbs.product.100269982.html

    And these microwavable individual packs of Quinoa and brown rice.

    https://www.costco.com/Seeds-of-Change-Organic-Quinoa-and-Brown-Rice-8.5-oz,-6-count.product.100381510.html

    At night, I put 1 serving of vegetables in a small tupperware straight from the giant bag in freezer. Keep in fridge for next day. And take 1 can and 1 quinoa pack.

    At work, I just microwave everything for 3 minutes.

    Super cheap and nutritious meal (lunch or dinner.)

    For breakfast, I make the Joe Rogan kale shake the night before in a blender, but add protein powder. Drink in morning - bam and then coffee and out the door.

    For the 3rd meal, I go to a deli on Sundays and get 5 salads where you pick the ingredients. Buy it all at once. I ask them to put dressing in small container inside. That's 5 nutritious salads with chicken for every day of the week.

    Super cheap and easy as fuc.

    It is not that hard to count calories. Just eliminate eating out, shit snacking. you want to snack? make a salad and use horesradish and vinegar as dressing or eat some carrots. What does it for lot of people is drinking, partying on weekends and eating out. You can do good for 4 or 5 days and workout 4x that week or 5 but unless you in major deficit you wont have proper fat loss if you go to shit on weekend. I think alcohol is real issue for lot of people. Notice even guys on steroids with good dieting avoid alcohol and eating out.

    This.

    It's been scientifically demonstrated that our brains get addicted to fats and salts. You can't quit them cold turkey just like you can't quit most other addictions cold turkey. To improve your chances of success, you have to ease into the new lifestyle, slowly but surely. Beginning to see results is the best motivator to take the next step. But trying to do a 180 after years of eating the same garbage, is setting yourself up for failure, in most cases.
