I want a very intense diet

I want something like the fat bombs where I eat X amount a day and basically nothing else. I don't care much for food, I just want to eat what I need and nothing else. What is an ideal recepie? Like avacado, bacon, and anything else? Maybe a touch of carbs? I want a diet like where I basically only eat the same thing at the same time every day. Anyone have a recepie for something like this?

    Find what you like and what fits your macros. Eat that daily. I do but my diet might now work for you.

    EDIT: I eat the same BASIC thing every day.... and leave enough room for surprise cookies!

    Exactly. This smacks of someone who has no idea what they are doing or trying to achieve.

    What is your current situation? What has or has not worked for you in the past? What are your goals?

    Without this detail no-one is going to be able to answer your question.

    Avocado, bacon... bread (carbs).... What you want is a BLTA. That's where your recipe is headed.

    This is absurd. At least say what you DO like and what your goals are.

    I know what op means about food, I'm not real crazy about food, that is I'm not passionate about it like my husband, he loves food & has a passions for life. I get hungry so overate before but I ate mostly the same things back then too, hard to explain

    broccoli and mushrooms you can basically eat as much as you want and not worry about the calories.

    i have baked sweet potato chips most days and never get bored of them. I think I could eat them every day forever. so good.

    Recipe and pics would be great.

    I'm thinking I'll cut the spam into the shape of a lobster for good measure.

    This may be what would fit the bill?!?!

    I'd almost suggest a Keto diet, but they're not good for long-term eating as they don't help you form healthy eating habits, just 'triage'ing the effects of bad eating.
    Honestly it sounds like you should speak to a nutritionist and a psychologist. Nutritionist will help you form an idea of exactly what you will need, and psychologist will help improve what sounds like a bit of a crap relationship with food.
    Like honestly I'm kinda the same; I don't cherry-pick things to eat then post them on Instagram and go 'OMG THIS TASTES AMAZING' because I think the idea of us picking and choosing what we eat is ridiculously privileged when kids are literally starving around the world... but I still like eating specific things because they bring me comfort.
    Psychologically, most humans normally look to food as a source of comfort - as a full belly to our ancestors meant survival and security. If you're not feeling this then that may suggest some kind of subconscious issue with food.
    But...
    That's just a suggestion. Best way to get the food you need is to ask a nutritionist :) Please don't just fat-bomb your way through... your cholesterol levels will thank you lol

    As a monodiet? (Duodiet, I guess.)

    Potatoes as a monodiet seems to be trendy.

    In other circles, beef.

    In some parts of Silicon Valley, Soylent 2.0 (not the same as in the movie).

    Can't really recommend any, why not just do the body builder thing (rice, broccoli, chicken breast (or occasionally salmon), but add some nuts and avocado and maybe cook the broccoli with olive oil). Simple, boring, but more balanced and a bit more variety, so better nutritionally.

    Better still if you eat some different vegetables, maybe some oats or potatoes or sweet potatoes instead of the rice, vary the protein even more, etc., but I expect that would be too boring and not "intense" enough? Who knew nutrition = not adequately intense!

    @Jacquifly I'm speaking for myself, but I'd say keto, or low carb has given me a long term good habit of basically avoiding things like processed food and refined sugar.

    Plenty of "processed foods" seem to be popular on keto.

    Not that being processed is the end of the world (or even bad).

    All sugar (as in fruit) is problematic on keto, at least in more than tiny amounts. I did keto briefly (liked it fine, didn't think it was healthier than how I normally eat) and found it really difficult to eat even my normal amount of vegetables (which admittedly is a lot, I had to cut back a little), plus some nuts and a small amount of greek yogurt or cottage cheese, and my limit was much higher than the usual, like 60+ g (more like 35 g net). On that I couldn't have any fruit, any beans, any potatoes or sweet potatoes, any oats -- all foods I'd call generally unprocessed (not that it matters, again) and nutrient dense.

    Keto is a fine way of eating if it works for you, but not because the foods permitted make for a healthier diet (you can do healthy on keto with a little effort, and healthy not on keto, obviously).

    Anyway, OP's main concern seems to be ease and "intensity," not nutrition, I suppose.
