Quick Question

You should be aiming for no more than 225 cal's per meal - which is around 50-55g/protein per serving/meal.

this is what i keep in mind:

* 1 gram of carbohydrate = 4 calories

* 1 gram of protein = 4 calories

* 1 gram of fat = 9 calories

* 1 gram of alcohol = 7 calories

I find it far more handy to know how many grams you should be aiming for than calories.

A calories is a calorie, but when you're on a restricted diet, it's really the QUALITY of the calories you're looking at.

It's something you'll find very handy as you go on ... just a little fyi :)
