I think perhaps we have found at least some of the problem, you seem to relate a clean diet to drinking nothing but water and eating every 3 hours. This is no surprise, seeing as you have lived off nothing but fast food for the last 4 years it is no wonder your view of what is a 'clean diet' is somewhat skewed. Kuyt provided you with some diet options, I would also strongly suggest you do some more reading on what a sustainable diet consists of.
The key word here is sustainable
, what you have been doing obviously isn't sustainable as you're wanting to quit so soon. I would suggest reading and talking to some people about diet, perhaps make a new thread and consider what options are going to be sustainable for you. I couldn't sustain 6 meals a day or nothing but water either, it would drive most people insane.

We have 'meal' threads here on M&B where you can look for ideas, again think sustainability. I think what you're experiencing is the realisation that the typical bodybuilder diet is a lie and for sustainability in the long-term especially if you are coming into a time where you will have increased responsibilities requires eating patterns which are more sustainable.
"Hey lawn mower, I have to go, it's been 2 hours and 59 minutes since my last meal and I have to go in and eat another one, even though I've been out in the sun and it's going to make me sick".
Although despite our exchange today... I would suggest that if you're actually talking to your lawn mower, diet is perhaps the least of your concerns
