You need protein and carbs in each meal/snack. Not one or the other.

7am more protein
10am too much protein no carbs
lunch no protein?

See what Im sayin?

What kind of steak are you eating?

Your body needs the carbs to support muscle growth and glycogen stores, both fast and slow digesting carbs. You don't give your body what it needs to support the muscle, you burn it instead of fat, which also decreases your metabolism. You don't eat fibrous carbs, well, your digestive tract ends up like an LA freeway around rushhour.

Here's a link with a bit more scientific breakdown:

Does that help?

I think he means mincemeat?

Mincemeat is a mixture of chopped dried fruit, distilled spirits and spices, and sometimes beef suet, beef, or venison[citation needed]. Originally, mincemeat always contained meat.[citation needed] Many modern recipes contain beef suet, though vegetable shortening is sometimes used in its place. Mincemeat, and similar variants are found in the UK, Ireland, Brittany, northern Europe, as well as the United States and Canada. It should not be confused with minced or ground meat.

It has some carbs, but it's in the midday meal, and no carbs are listed pre or post workout....

Yeah, you need some carbs during the day to handle the evening workout. Even though you are trying to loose fat, you wont be ablt to build any muscle if you skimp THAT hard on the carbs. Your last meal is really late too, but I assume it's because of your workout schedule. You are having too much fat with those fried eggs. I'd add just a little bit of carbs with dinner too. You don't have any after your workout, and your glycogen is probably down to nothing.
