(Add something else in here like Some Egg Whites and a Yolk, Ham, Turkey, Chicken etc etc, to boost Protein. You could add a few Almonds onto the Oatmeal for Fat if you like, or some other crushed small Nut content, or even a bit of Powdered Flax as examples, perhaps even some Yoghurt, or leave it plain.)
snack Cottage Cheese 1 serving...2%
(Go for low Fat cheese it's got more Protein and more good Fat.)
Lunch 2 slices whole wheat multi grain bread
Grilled Chicken Breast
2 slices of Tomatoes as a sandwich
(Pretty good meal)
Snack Almonds probably 30 almonds total
(Have some kind of Protein source in there to boost calories)
Dinner Large all Veggi Salad with Vinegar/oil dressing
(Add another meal in about 2-3 hours after this, something like large Mushroom heads with Grilled Low Fat Cheese on, Beans on Toast, Large Ham Sandwhich, es examples.)

Reccomendations for Tuna are currently 2-3 portions a week. I'd say switch the Tuna for something like Chicken or Turkey, then use a plant or oil source for the Fat, as the body converts Omega-3 plant and oil Fat ,into EPA and DHA which is the Fat in Fish anyway. Albeit a little wasteage, but this allows people to cut reliance on Fish.
A piece of Chicken with something like Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Sesame Oil, Canola Oil, Peanut Oil etc etc, would be an adequate replacement for oily Fish anyway.
If you were accumulating Heavy Metals, Tryptophan, an Amino Acid in proteins, would help Chelate them, as would Vit C, so you could take at least a 500mg Vit C a day, to help with that, as well as Immune boosting and Collagen production. Plus C boost Iron in the body.
If you took any C, you could take buffered if you experienced slight issues off normal.
As Brent says, it takes time to adjust to a new way of eating and controlling food consumption. You'll get there, so don't worry. Just be patient, beleive in yourself and keep being good to yourself.
You are worth the time and effort and therefore being consistent and patient will be more beneficial to you. It's okay to question something physically new, as long as you don't come up with offputting answers.
GOOD LUCK. You CAN be proud of wanting to do this, and being accountable. It's a small but VERY worthwhile step, on hopefully a worthwhile road to a more satisfying you, so so far you're not really doing anything really wrong.

Now, I look forward to my meals and I eat A LOT and still continue to loose weight. It's not how much you eat, it's WHAT you eat. I try to eat as much clean food during the day as I can while still continuing to loose weight. Stick with it!! I know it seems hard at first, but by slowly and consistantly increasing your calories each day until you've reached your consumption goal you'll teach your body the correct way of eating AND your body will begin to let the fat go because it won't feel like it needs it to survive!
You're doing great! Just hang in there!
