I was having trouble trying to figure out calorie distribution for my 1500 calorie diet, when a friend made a suggestion. Have 300 calories for Breakfast, 400 calories for Lunch, 400 calories for Dinner, and 2 Snacks that are 200 calories each. The Nutrition Tracker is also a big help.
I have used this strategy for a long time and it works for me. I eat basically 400 calories at each main meal and one 100-200 calorie snack. If your calorie allotment is higher eat three 400 calorie meals and 2-3 snacks at 100-300 calories depending on your calorie range.
