For fat loss, I would limit the protein shakes to 1 a day. They are a liquid meal and don't require your body to digest, which keeps your metabolism up. The protein bars are even worse. Most are just glorified candy bars. I'd omit the yogurt too. Sugar laden and dairy, not the best for weight loss.

Choose more real food, such as eggs, oatmeal, brown rice, sweet potatoes, chicken, turkey, beef, pork, various nuts, flax, etc.

Diet tweaking should give you some results.
