Yes and no more fried eggs. An occasional boiled egg might be ok.
Give her a good cat vitamin and foods such as boiled/baked chicken, a good quality, natural, low protein chicken dog food, and plenty of fresh veggies. Avoid starchy foods such as corn, peas, potatoes, pasta, etc. I would only give her fruits once a week.
If you have trouble getting her to eat healthy foods add a little "Touch of Butter" spray.
Overweight skunks like to sleep a lot. Try to keep her active. If you have trouble with that, fill your bathtub with water and let her swim for a few minutes every day.
It might be wise to get her blood profile done too.

Subject: SK: Overweight skunk
On Saturday I adopted a beautiful, blonde skunk. She has been eating a diet
consisting of a lot of cucumbers and fried eggs. She looks like a ball on
feet. Will a simple change in diet take off the excess weight? She is very
sweet but I think she feels I am depriving her by not supplying the diet she
is used to. She has eaten very little, I think my baby skunk eats more than
she does. Advice would sure be appreciated...
