A general calorie breakdown could be something like:
300-400 breakfast
500 for lunch and 500 dinner
200-300 for planned snacks.

So your 444 calorie lunch would fit.

I also hate most salads...only order a salad if it actually sounds good to you. Also, you have to ask for all the dressing on the side otherwise you can end up with a few hundred calories more than planned (they don't necessarily measure when adding the dressing for you and it's easy to add and extra tablespoon or two when eyeing dressing).

1550-1700 is my calorie range for the day. I have to start looking at the breakdown of carbs and proteins. Carbs tend to make it much harder for me to lose so I would like to limit them without completely eliminating them as I do love them.

444 calories for lunch would be appropriate for most weight loss calorie ranges...what is your range??

I just started dieting on Monday. My firm provides free lunch, a $15 minimum of whatever restaurants in the area will deliver. Monday I ordered a salad with grilled chicken ( i HATE salads, just screams diet to me) and yesterday and today I ordered a whole wheat grilled chicken wrap with honey dijon, grilled onions, and cheddar cheese. Is this wrap OK? I threw it in my calorie counter and it says 444 calories. I'm brand new to all this, so I'm not really sure if thats too much for a lunch.
