How many grams of protein equal one serving and.....
What I would like to know is how I eat grams of protein for the equivalent of one serving of protein. In the nutrition guide, it says I need to eat 7 servings of protein a day since I am in phase 1 and lI level, but I do not know how much this means to grams.
For example, it is written on my cereal box: 9g of protein and 38g of carbohydrate. Its the equivalent to how many servings each.

That's what I wonder is for each category: dairy, fruits, vegetables, fats.

Thank you!

If you're doing P90X take a look at page 16 of the nutrition guide. A "portion" of a protein = 100 calories. Since different foods have different weights you can't really say that 9 grams of protein = 1 serving. The guide does, however, give some pretty good examples in terms of various protein containing foods and how much weight of those you should eat for 1 portion.
