    i would definatly have less protein shakes and more omega-3 fats, make meal 2 an actual meal, protein shake + milk isnt a meal! (unless its a gallon of milk )

    also get a dense grainy bread instead of the pita....aaaand you seem to be taking in ALOT of fat, are your sure you wouldnt benefit more from decreasing fats and increasing carbs?

    I eat the whole egg and I buy the ones with added omega-3. Do most of you skip the yoke? I sometimes have only 2 or 3 of the five yokes. I also take flex seed oil, multi's and other suppliments. I guess I could take out a shake and have a meal for the second one or add a chicken breast.

    i belive that fish sources of omega-3 have the highest bioavailability, so try get some fish oil caps, or fatty fish into your diet, i wouldnt rely on omega-3 eggs for your intake (especially with the amount of fat your eating!)

    try keeping your fat intake to 20-25% of total calories, as it is the macronutrient which is most easily stored as adipose
