Okay, here’s a freebie.

Math skills? Yes.

Discipline? Yes.

Precise knowledge of food values? NO!

But what you do need is a way to consistently (accurate isn’t important) measure bodyfat levels.

Start eating and once a week measure bodyfat levels. Keep going if muscle gain is greater than fat gain. If not, drop calories a little. If you hit two weeks in a row were the fat gain and muscle gain are equal, start cutting. Then aim to loose twice as much fat as muscle. Cycle through this until done.

Precise knowledge of change in bodyfat levels is probably the most important unless you just want to get fat.
