Army ration food packs?

Would anyone consider eating these as a staple of one's diet? They hold plenty of nutritional value and can be eaten hot or cold. If they can give soldiers the energy to endure extreme training then I'm sure they will be fine for athletes and gym goers.

eating at a slight deficit to lose fat and build muscle

Ok so I have done a bit of research and found that you can build muscle and lose fat at the same time providing your diet is spot on (right macros, esp protein) and the deficit is small (around 2-300kcal) and your BF is no less than 10-11% (I'm 15-16%) the only issue with this is how to know...
