I'm not sure there is an easy answer to what you should be getting in terms of proteins, fats, and carbs. The proportions are different for everyone, and as we've established on other posts, what the government says you should have for protein is, in the opinion of some, woefully inadequate.

If you are looking for information regarding the macronutrients of the protein, fat, and carb proportions, you can look through previous posts, as it's been discussed a lot! Here are a few:

how many grams of protein do you eat per day?
Proteins, carbs, need to lose weight and I need help!
Help - What do you think of my diet?
Protein/Fat again - can I ask a question

If you are looking for specifics on micronutrients (vitamins, etc.), Pam's already pointed you right where you need to be .

And now that you don't have to be perfect, you can be good.
