    No need to set a specific 'diet'. Eat a variety of foods to meet your daily macro goals. It'll take a little more time to determine macros/calories, but worth the variety of foods.

    Note: Limit canned tuna consumption due to mercury.

    Read the stickies.

    Up your fats a bit to reach the minimum (0.4g/lb). You can do this by lowering protein, which you are above the minimum for, or carbs. Some people fear mercury poisoning from tuna, especially if you're eating 2 cans for lunch everyday. I believe the recommendation for max amount is something like 2-3 cans of light tuna a week.

    EDIT: Also, check the post above. You wouldn't have to worry about a lot of things if you just had a flexible diet, while meeting your macro minimums/preference and calorie target. You'd also suffer from less pallet fatigue from eating the same day in and day out. However, pallet fatigue on a cut probably isn't a problem.
