    Looks good as far as types of food. If fat loss is your goal, cut out the snacking.
    You lousy kids! Get off my savannah!

    looks delicious, but a little light on the protein to me.

    2 eggs - 12 grams protein
    4 oz fish > - 20 grams
    6 oz chicken - 27 grams

    So maybe that's about 59 grams of protein, so unless your total bodyweight is 80 lbs or so, methinks you need more protein.

    But I eat once a day usually.

    I dig your granite countertops.

    Protein could be on the low side.

    However, there are 3 eggs not 2. There's also protein in the yoghurt, although that looks like a small portion, and the vegetables and avocados have significant protein too. I'd say that's at least another 20 g to add to the total.

    Looks pretty good though. Mark recommends eating some some sulphurous vegetables every day, but perhaps you are eating them most days. Hard to tell how much variety you're getting from just one day's intake.
    F 5 ft 3. HW: 196 lbs. Primal SW (May 2011): 182 lbs (42% BF)... W June '12: 160 lbs (29% BF) (UK size 12, US size 8). GW: ~24% BF - have ditched the scales til I fit into a pair of UK size 10 bootcut jeans. Currently aligning towards 'The Perfect Health Diet' having swapped some fat for potatoes.

    thanks for the tip, my weight is 180 and I'm thinking about starting a muscle building program so was going to alter some things to up the protein intake to 1g per 1 lb and I was hoping that chicken and fish is more protein than you stated, but I guess it's hard to say how big it is from the picture
