My current diet. Help with tweaking please.
 
Right now I am trying to lose weight so my diet looks like this.

Breakfast: 4 - 5 egg whites
3 pieces of bacon
16 oz. of cold water

Lunch: 2 .oz chicken breast
1 cup white rice
8 oz coffee and 8 oz water

Dinner: varies but is usually some sort of gluten free pasta with ground beef and sauce.

Should I be eating more frequently? Anything I should add or cut out, replace, etc. This is just a sample but it doesn't deviate too much from these things.

Well the 1st thing I see when I look at this is, you aren't eating enough. I would add 2 protein shakes. 1 between breakfast and lunch and one between lunch and dinner. This will be 5 small meals instead of just 3. Eat more protein and less carbs, switch from saturated fats to healthy fats. 2 oz of chicken breast? What is that? A chicken breast cut in 4ths? Cut out the egg yolks if you are eating them and the bacon and add almonds instead. Oatmeal, brown rice and potatoes are better choices than pasta and unhealthy fats. Eat more protein, for instance, through out the day I eat 18 egg whites, 4 chicken breast, 2 shakes at 50g each and a fillet of fish. And this is all in my contest prep, where I roughly go from 10% body fat to 4-5% body fat.

Thanks
 
This helps out A LOT. I have been searching through every book, website, magazine, etc. and have never found anything that was just straight to the point. I'll start working on this and if you don't mind, come back with some questions once I get everything straightened out.
