A simple list for lunch

If you have questions on how much protein should you be eating, here is a link I found complete: http://www.canadianliving.com/health/nutrition/how_much_protein_do_we_need.php
And what about carbohydrates? For example, a person who eats approximately 2,000 calories per day should take in about 250 grams of carbohydrates (2,000 divided by 2 = 1,000 and 1,000 divided by 4 = 250).
A food diary will help you figure out how many calories you are consuming each day and it will also tell you if you are getting enough fruits, vegetables, and whole grains that should be part of a healthy diet.
