What plan are you following and how many carbs are you trying to limit yourself to each day? Your food intake looks LC. Perhaps logging all your food into a food journal will show you the break down of carbs, fat, protein and calories. This can be helpful to see. This can show you where hidden carbs are, like possibly in the protein shake as they are not all created equal. I would also recommend eating regular food (meats, cheese, eggs, veggies), not just the frozen meals, although they sure can come in handy. This way you know exactly what goes into them. Some packaged food can have a lot of sodium. Also remember to drink plenty of fluids. Best of luck to you!
Nothing right now can possibly taste as good as thin will feel!!!

It says you are doing atkins, are you on induction? I'm not following atkins right now, have to read up on it more to be of help. so I'll leave that to someone who knows more about atkins. But for me, I would be starving on that small amount of food. For instance for lunch I would eat the atkins meal, plus a salad and/or broccoli... but again, i'm not on atkins induction. great job on the loss so far!

Looks OK, what does the 'fat bomb' consist of? Word to the wise--the more you eat real food (for example egg omelet with salsa and cheese instead of shake) the better off you will be in the long run--as you have to change your eating habits for life if you want to keep the weight off for life.

I have read what the others have said so far and they are 100% right! If, you fix your meals one day a head with real food you will have a much better result. The shakes, bars, and frozen meals are OK once in a while to help you out in a pinch but I would never use them daily. I also find that added something green keeps you full longer. The good fiber is best.

Try this for a few days and see what happens.

B: 3 eggs with butter and smoked paprika
L: Baby spinach, 3 oz tuna, 1 oz String cheese
S: Atkins what ever or string cheese or beef jerky
D: Chicken breast, broccoli and Cheese

I can tell you with that you will lose way more than using shakes, bars, and other stuff.

Count your carbs!
