    Need some advice on me/my wife’s diet

    So me and my wife are about to start a diet for the purpose of losing weight and maintaining the weight thereafter.

    Breakfast will consist of 2 scoops protein
    (Still have ON protein but it will be replaced by Phase 8 protein) and the same for lunch. Dinner consist of healthy fats like olive oil, cheese, sour cream, etc, a meat (usually chicken or red meat), carbs (pasta rarely, potatoes, Mac and cheese and the vegetables.

    Outside of that we plan to buy fruits like avocados, bananas, oranges to use as snacks between meals. We will keep cereal for the kids breakfast and they get free lunch in school so that takes care of that.

    So with that said, would it be prudent to be on a multivitamin and/or fish oil while we change our unhealthy eating habits?

    Weight loss is dictated by calories out being greater than calories in.

    Out of interest, why do you feel the need to swap protein powders?

    I can get 3 2-lbs from Walmart for $7 more than a 5-lbs tub of ON so that is a no brainer. Plus the fact it is an 8 hr protein it will leave us feeling full longer. I’ve used it before so I know it has that effect. Plus it taste better and we don’t need vanilla almond milk anymore to mix our ON with

    A multi is fine if you feel you're not getting enough vegetables and greens. As has been stated above weight is lost because of caloric deficit, not the subjective opinion of what you believe to be "clean" or "healthy."

    Eating at a deficit is not that difficult seeing as we both carry a lot of excess body fat (my BMI is 36%, won’t even get into hers on this forum)

    We keep up with protein intake, make sure we have healthy foods for dinner and eat healthy snacks such as fruit and yogurt, eggs, etc

    Being overweight and losing weight has been steady with high intensity workouts such as squatting, benching, rows, etc. we also do conditioning twice a week and stretch every night. We do all of this together.

    BMI isn't relevant. It's not a measure you should worry about and it's bunk. Example. I'm 32 BMI and not really all that fatty right now. Probably 16ish% BF.

    It's TDEE you need to worry about. TDEE is in relation to your BMR. How you create that deficit isn't relevant. You don't need to exercise if you don't want to in order to lose weight.

    Regardless, if you're losing weight, that's great. Eventually, you're going to need to adjust those calories down as you lose weight. This is why you want to focus on caloric intake to TDEE and meeting your macros versus "I eat healthy and exercise." That will work when you're starting and you're really overweight, but eventually it will stop working.

    You can be a fatass eating nothing but healthy foods and healthy snacks. You could gain weight on that diet, if you consume enough.

    You need to track your food and know your total calories in. Every thing you eat, every day. Also morning bodyweight. Restrict your calories consumed until you are consistently losing weight at a rate of 1-2 lbs of bodyweight per week on average.

    If you are consistently losing weight already, then the reason to start tracking everything now is so that you know what you are consuming now, and if and when you need to lower that because your weight loss has stalled out for a week or two, you can quantitatively drop the required calories, no more no less, to continue progress. Also, tracking is particularly helpful when you hit a day or days where you are consuming different foods...holidays, parties, going out, vacation, etc...it's very difficult to 'eyeball' or guess an equal calorie count with different foods than what you are used to...especially if you don't even know the baseline calories you are getting from your usual foods
