Fat don't make you fat, excess calories do.
Certain fats can actually help burn fat!
You're going to have to count the calories, I mean there is nothing wrong with protein shakes, beef jerky & such but just how much are you having? If its more convenient for you, whey protein/protein shakes are fine.
Personally I'd keep the carbs low and taper off by the evening. Plenty of healthy fats omega 3,6,9 and high protein.
You are eating the right foods but how much of it you're eating is anybodies guess. As long as you're in a calorie deficit you'll lose weight but 2-3lbs per week maybe a tad optimistic.
The 6lbs lost in the first week will be mainly/all water weight.
