Now that I know how much I'm supposed to eat, what are the right kinds of foods to eat?

We mentioned earlier that calories come in three different forms: protein, complex and simple carbohydrate, and fat. All of these, in varying proportions, are necessary to good health. A balanced diet should contain the following percentages of your daily caloric intake:

Protein - 10 to 15 percent

Carbohydrate - 60 to 70 percent

Fat - 20 to 30 percent
