Dear Jakes
Your food intake looks reasonable and should provide sufficient energy for your physical activity. However, I would caution you against having 2 eggs every day of the week. According to the SA Heart Foundation, South Africans should not eat more than 4 eggs per week! Substitute cottage cheese (low-fat) and fish for some of these eggs to keep your cholesterol levels down.
Best regards
