14 years old, 149 pounds, 5'3". I want to lose fat around my belly and legs. I need to get lighter for running as well.
For breakfast I've been having 3 eggs and 2 slices of bacon + 35g of butter (which I'm thinking is too much?)
Lunch is a salad, which isn't huge. 1 salmon fillet with 6 or 7 nuts and some lettuce and leaf things. :P
Dinner is a cut of meat (not usually fatty and not very big) and some steamed veggies. The meat would probably be palm sized.
Then I usually have a bowl of fruit. Strawberries and blueberries and around 5 tea spoons of Greek yoghurt.
I've been doing this for around two weeks now. I'm not sure about satiety signals, because if i'm not hungry for lunch I can't just leave it and eat it at, say, 3:00PM. I'd get some weird looks if I was in class. And some days I'm hungrier than others. But does this look like too much food for weight loss? I will also start HIIT in the form of running when I clear my cold.
I'm scared that I eat as much as men haha.

For a 14 year old girl eat as much as you want from the approved list and don't concern yourself with portioning. Do, however eat slowly and pay attention to your hunger signals. Do pay attention to emotional eating. And do get out and have some fun.
No, what you have posted does not look like too much food at all.
