I generally use bacon and its fat, butter, cream, avocados, avocado and olive oil. I eat chicken with it's skin and eat the fatty parts on the cuts of meat too.

So, as long as you don't think it's too much, keep going; otherwise, you could try cutting it down a bit and see how that goes.
Have you only been weighing yourself and not measuring? I find weighing to be very inaccurate way to determine progress. Your body composition could be changing and you could remain the same weight. I would suggest measuring. I do both. One week I lost no weight but lost 1 inch.
What I suggest is that you start yourself a food / exercise journal on here and write down everything you eat. It's a good way to review and could help find some spots that need some work. Have you checked out my food journal? There are a few meals that aren't primal in there (went out for dinner), so just skip those ones. I often eat the same things day in and out, but I eat what I like and I've seen good progress so far.
As far as meals go and to avoid snacking, make sure you're getting enough protein and fat in each meal and include some low-carb veggies. My first meal today (when I eat it) will likely be 4 whole eggs fried in bacon fat, 3-4 strips of bacon and 1/3 - 1/2 cucumber, with a coffee with some whole milk and water. After this, I will likely be satisfied until about 7pm (sometimes later). Tonight for dinner, I'm having cheeseburgers (sans bun) with a salad with homemade ceasar dressing and then likely some coco nibs or 71.8% callets and a glass of dry red wine and water. If I'm hungry after that, I'll eat another meal. No snacking. If I'm not hungry for a full meal, I'm not hungry. Snacking calories can easily add up and could be pushing you over the edge of too many calories (I'm not saying this is what's happening) especially when snacking on stuff like nuts.
