What do you think?

Seems like way too much hassle for him to eat that specific.

Unless he is training for a contest or something similar.

Weighing and preparing all that - I tried it but I complicated stuff too much and gained nothing.

I’d give him a list of good food choices and tell him to train hard and eat big.
If he gains weight it’s all good. If not: eat more.
