I don't think you have enough food.  I believe you need to be eating all day
long.  You will be exercising all day long, and I think you need regular
snacks.  Well, at least I do; I get feeling pretty hungry and weak if I don't
eat something every hour or so.  

Your meals sound a little boring, but you are right on target with the
one-pot meals.  I have some recipes on my web page,

Take a look at the calories on your food.  You will go nuts trying to count
calories each day, but you are going to need maybe 4000 per day.  If you are
not hitting somewhere between 3500 - 4000 you are coming up short.  I hiked
your part of the AT for 10 days this spring, at every fat thing in sight, and
still lost 8 pounds.
