Do your cardio first thing in the morning, on an empty stomach.
Lift later in the day (or on a different day) at least 6 or 7 hours and 2 or 3 meals after cardio.
You need more fat. You only have fat in meal #6. Fat is your friend.
Don't eat fat and carbs in the same meal. In meal 1 if you must have cheese, try to make it ZERO fat cheese.

I believe they mean EFA's found in things such as flax seed, and different kind of nuts among other things. Typically animal fat isn't the best choice.

A few quick rules to live by:
-Eat protein at every meal.
-Never eat JUST protein. Eat carbs OR fat with each meal.
-Never eat BOTH carbs and fat at the same meal.
So, to answer your question, yes you could eat bacon with the egg whites, but:
-you won't want to eat it with the toast as you'll be mixing fats and carbs
-you don't really want the toast anyway. You want to keep your carbs low on the glycemic index (brown rice, yams, oatmeal).
-bacon could be ok from time to time, but it's fat is saturated. There are better options for sure.
