I feel like I'm eating way too much... Today for breakfast I had 12oz of broccoli and cauliflower steamed then sauteed with olive and coconut oil, garlic, Tabasco, black pepper. 4 eggs. and 5 pieces of bacon. when I do this I usually skip lunch or have a piece of fruit, and only have a small dinner. but I feel like I'm eating too much food and fat.

Right on @Linds - That's just what I was gonna say.

To add something, I've been usually having a big breakfast, no lunch, and a variable dinner for a couple months and love it. I find that this helps my body self-regulate calories as my dinner size will vary greatly from day to day depending on caloric needs. If you're still questioning it, track using cron-o-meter or something else. This will also help identify anyhing you're lacking nutritionally.

I would say no based on your description. And actually that doesn't sound like a whole lot of food given that you skip lunch and have a small dinner, though it depends on what your total calories end up being. Are you gaining weight? Do you have enough energy? How do you feel?

Calculate your baseline calorie requirements by using something like this tool, then track what your eating using an app like Cronometer or My Fitness Pal, that's really the only way you'll know for certain.
