How big are your typical meals? As in, ounces of protein, cups of grains/starches, cups of veggies and tablespoons of fat? and how many hours between meals ? Also, do you eat animal protein at EVERY meal/snack

Uh oh....    ;D

I use the eyeball method to roughly approximate my average intake.  :P

Seriously though, after a while you get a feel for how much of something is a serving. I don't force myself to standard servings but at the same time try to to maintain some semblance of consistency with my SWAMI. It doesn't always work.  :o

Over the years my meal patterns have changed. I pretty much snack a couple times in the AM and then have a regular lunch and dinner about 4-5 hours apart.

Are your snacks in the morning mostly protein or what are you eating for snacks? My patterns have almost done a complete reversal. I used to eat tons of protein and now I just want veggies though I do still eat animal protein it is much smaller quantities. Animal protein makes me very hungry if I eat it early in the day or in any normal quantity.

My snacks vary. Animal protein is more satisfying. I might eat leftovers, celery, rutabaga or have some nuts. I start every day with my fruit servings.
