I'm about 5'6, 246lbs and 27 years old. Can someone out there please help me to improve my meals? I have not yet calculated today, Friday's, meal, but it's probably just as bad. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thursday's Menu

Breakfast (8:15 a.m.)
-1 smiley bowl of Special K (i ate it with organic skim milk which i did not drink after the cereal was gone)
-2 cups of mean green (1 bunch of kale, 1 cucumber, 1 zucchini, 2 pink lady apples, 1/2 lemon and 7 strawberries)
-1 “one a day” energy vitaman
(*Note: Mean Green is what I call the juice I make in my juicer)

Lunch @ 11:40 a.m.
-1 mixed green salad with cut up chicken thigh, shredded parm. cheese and 2 tbsp of Caesar dressing
-1 apricot
-1/2 bottle of water

Snack (3:08 p.m.)
