A simple way to estimate the correct amount of calories in food for lunch or dinner is to use your own hand as a guide. If you need to lose weight, eat the volume of one of your hands in protein and two of your hands in vegetables. If you need to maintain your weight, eat the volume of one and a half of your hands in protein and three of your hands in vegetables. If you need to gain weight, eat the volume of two of your hands in protein and four of your hands in vegetables. (Vegetables include any salad you may eat at lunch or dinner plus the vegetables that accompany the entree.)

For snacks, you can slice bars by eyeing them, and you can do the same thing with the slices of breads we recommend. To be more precise, you can mark the bar in half, then those two halves in half. So, if you have a bar that is 160 calories, half would be 80, half of that would be 40. If you need to eat 110 calories, it should be very easy for you to see where 110 would be, and where to cut your bar.

If you want to be exact, place your 160 calorie bar on a blank sheet of paper. Divide the bar into 16 even parts. Then you know exactly where to cut your bar so that you have a 110 calorie snack.
