I'm less about the calories and more about the number of servings to keep me in balance. I have 3 pieces/servings of fruit everyday, usually a banana and apple and something else in season. I try and have at least 5 servings of veggies and as many as 10 in any given day provided at least 2 servings are green, dark and leafy. The trick with veggies is to know exactly how much is in a serving. I also try and have at least 3 servings of low-fat protein each day and try to make one of them low-fat dairy. I'm low-carbing it for the moment because I'm trying to lose weight, but I usually stick to 2 servings of carbs that are low-fat, low-cal and whole grain.
