It will work, but it won't be an optimal nutrition.

I happen to have lunches many times a week in restaurant. Eating one Big Mac or any sandwich with a diet coke, no side dish is a thing I do often and I lose weight, no problem. There are 600kcal in a BM so it fits within my goal of 1800 daily . The days I do so, it gives me much more satiety for the rest of the day, so it is easier to go on the light side.

As for fruits in the evening, I don't think that it is a good idea. There is a lot of fructose/glucose in them that are supposed to give you energy. If I eat a fruit alone, it is almost automatic; I am hungry within an hour. On weekdays, I eat fruits about an hour before lunch.
