    I think you need more fat. 1 TBS a day is probably not enough. Efa's in meal 6 would be good too. How many carbs are you eating in a day?? What do you make your shake with?

    What are your stats too?

    cardio 2x/day? thats overkill!
    I agree with Jill, need more info, stats, etc.
    and defintly more healthy fats.
    how much oatmeal?
    what is that low carb cereal?
    what kind of veggies? - you also need more fiberous ones too!

    (sorry for all the questions) we just want to help you get this right!

    I'm trying to lose fat as quick as I can!!!!! But I know it has to do more with my diet than anything!

    Oatmeal 1/3 cup
    FF Cottage Cheese 1/4 cup

    Low carb cereal: Special K
    100 calories, 3 g fat, 9 g. carbs, 10 g protein

    I mostly just eat salads - but add broccoli and cauliflower.

    For my shake - it is the EAS already made kind - they taste good!
    100 calories, 3 g fat, 2 g carbs and 15g protein

    Post your stats meaning your height, weight and bodyfat% if you know it. A pic would help too.

    You don't want to do a ton of cardio, just enough to facilitate fat loss...let the nutrition and weight training do the work for ya and then you can add more cardio as needed.

    Your stats will help us to know exactly how much food you should eat to achieve your goals.

    My height: 5'2"
    weight: 135lbs

    I don't know my bodyfat %.

    Please tell me what to do and eat! I am all yours...............
    I would rather stick to foods rather than whey.

    Cardio - 4x per week for fast fat loss - 3 25min. HIIT Session, 1 30 min. Traditional cardio. Just keep in mind that you will probably lose muscle with alot of cardio

    Oatmeal 1/3 cup
    FF Cottage Cheese 1/4 cup

    Not enough protein. Make that 1 Cup of Cottage Cheese and add 1T. Natty PB

    Low carb cereal: Special K
    100 calories, 3 g fat, 9 g. carbs, 10 g protein

    Special K cereal is crap. Get Fiber One or All Bran with extra Fiber. Also, FF Low carb milk called Carb Countdown. Add in a few eggs whites too and 1 whole egg

    I mostly just eat salads - but add broccoli and cauliflower.

    Be sure to add in tuna or chicken with your salad

    For my shake - it is the EAS already made kind - they taste good!
    100 calories, 3 g fat, 2 g carbs and 15g protein
    Get some fish oil caps. As Jill said, you need some more EFA's and here is a great place to add them
    You also need to add another meal somewhere. 4 meals a day is not enough.

    ----

    Meal 3 is pre-workout
    Meal 4 is post-workout

    For the protein - I usually have 2 ounces

    Is fish oil the best EFA??? What meals should I add this to?
