First of all, I know this question gets asked a few times a week. And I promise to only ask once, but thanks in advance to anyone who reads and critiques (or affirms) my daily habits. I'm about two months into a paleo lifestyle and I think I've got things down pretty good, but this will be my confirmation.
21 year old guy, 5' 11", 160 pounds. I fast randomly, but about once a week for 36 hours (dinner to breakfast.) I would like to trim down on my body fat percentage some more. Other than when I get outside, I work at a computer about six/eight hours a day.
07:00 AM - Wake up and run 2-4 miles with my dog everyday.
08:00 AM - Breakfast: 3 eggs, 1/2 spaghetti squash, 1/4 onion, one bell pepper and one chicken sausage smothered in homemade hatch green chili sauce. Supplements: 1000mg Omega-3 Salmon Oil, Zinc, and Probiotics.
08:30 AM - 11:00 AM - Two cups of coffee with three tablespoons whole cream.
12:00 PM - Lunch: 3 cups mixed greens with handful of grilled chicken (or shrimp or salmon), carrots, chopped almonds, feta cheese with olive oil & balsamic vinegar. Supplements: Probiotics
03:00 PM - Snack: Apple with a few tablespoons almond butter mixed with coconut oil and shredded coconut. Glass of green tea with shot of lemon juice.
05:00 PM - Either a primal workout, 5-10 miles of mountain biking, swimming/hiking with my dog, or some wakeboarding (in the summer.)
I can not, for the life of me, fall asleep on an empty stomach. Is that weird?
11:00 PM - Lights out.

I like it. Nice job. If this is working for you keep it going.
The few changes you might make over time:
The cream is kind of a morning snack. You can likely combine with breakfast or get rid of it. The almond butter could be reduced. However don't do that now.
