I never enjoy any meal without rice, so i eat a lot of rice, also trying not to eat simple carbs, that's all. Just find your maintenance and aim for a 500-1000 calories decifit a day depending on how fast you wanna lose and how much muscle lose you wanna lose.

Diet has never been a pain in the *** for me but training always is. I mean you get smaller, you get faster but also weaker. Your lifts decreases gradually, you can't do anything. You never enjoy it when you are lifting to protect as much as you do when you are lifting to gain.
In a proper cut, you shouldn't lose strength.. in some cases, you can gain strength. This is why you don't rush a cut.

Average 5.5 lbs a month isn't actually a rush i think. And if you lose around 20 lbs, yes your lifts will decrease for sure. Unless you just started lifting 2 weeks ago and your max deadlift is 150 lb.
