I dropped 30lbs in 4 months and got stronger doing a paleo type diet.
I ate meat or eggs and veggies for breakfast.
Lunch similar to breakfast
dinner same as lunch
PWO i would have a shake with water, whey, banana, pb.
I dropped 6" around my waist and gained some muscle doing this. Now I am doing intermittent fasting, because I like the idea of eating what i want, but having a small window to eat it, but I may go back to what i was doing. I have gained back 15lbs, but waist did not change.
