Hi, Paulao, and welcome! We don’t work with calories in this program, but rather with meeting your nutritional needs. You can see the amounts of major nutrients allotted to you based on information in your profile by clicking on “Exchange mode” in the toolbar above your menu, and comparing the totals at the bottom of each daily page to the following values:
1 carb exchange = 15 grams of carbohydrates + up to 3 grams of protein
1 protein exchange = 7 grams of protein + up to 5 grams of fat
1 fat exchange = 5 grams of fat
1 fruit exchange = 15 grams of carbohydrates
1 vegetable exchange = 5 grams of carbohydrates + up to 2 grams of protein
1 sweet exchange = up to 15 grams of carbohydrates + up to 5 grams of fat
1 free exchange = up to 5 grams of carbohydrates or up to 2 grams of protein or fat
I can assure you that there is a lot of protein in our menus, about 25% of energy. At your current weight, you get about 92 grams per day, or 1.2 grams per kilogram of body weight, 50% more than the general recommendation for women.

I just joined this week and when eating from the selection from my menus, I was wondering how many calories I have eaten. Is there any way to calculate calories? I also feel like the foods chosen in menus do not have enough protein to keep me full, even when eating every 3 hours.
