***For the average-sized person, PROTEIN should account for ABOUT 20 to 30 grams protein per meal, THREE meals per day MINIMUM.  Some people may require as much as 46 grams best protein per meal, so consider this tip: FORGET CALORIES, grams and strict portion control. Start with a satisfying amount of BEST protein and GOOD fat, then add carbs, starting with "most favorable" carbs, which are needed for acid/alkline balance.  OR use the "eye-ball" approach: one fist for protein, two fists (or more) for "most favorable carbs" and one fist (or less, depending on needs) for "favorable" and "unfavorable" carbs - TOGETHER, plus some added butter, olive oil and/or nuts or seeds. (Groups that benefit from higher amounts of the more easily digested protein include athletes in certain stages of training, the seriously ill or malnourished,  pregnant and lactating moms,  and those of us with "insulin/blood sugar imbalances": i.e. most of us).
