Chobani Greek Yogurt - 0% Plain Non-Fat 32 oz, 4 oz (113.5g)
Calories/Carbs/Fat/Protein -- 70/5/0/12
Raspberries - Raw, 10 raspberries
Calories/Carbs/Fat/Protein -- 10/2/0/0
Yves - Meatless Breakfast Sausage Patties, 2 patties (57g)
Calories/Carbs/Fat/Protein -- 80/4/2/11

Calories/Carbs/Fat/Protein -- 280/33/5/27

I know, from the threads, that we are supposed to be at 400-500 cals, <30carbs of grains, minimum of 25g of protein, <20 carbs of fruit, <15g of fat, and <15g of dairy (<120 cals).

Calories/Carbs/Fat/Protein -- 400-500/ <50 / <15 / 25 compared to:
Calories/Carbs/Fat/Protein -- 280/33/5/27

So, I need to make up my cals somewhere. Maybe if I double my fruit intake, and double my protein (without raising the fat over 15g), I can make it up? I am confused...
Well, I am in my first week of Phase 2, but am OBSESSING over my Phase 3 breakfasts and did a mini-breakdown

Protein: Looks low in whole protein and ~1/2 a serving, even though the yogurt makes up for it
Grain: This looks like a perfect serving
Fruit: This looks like 1/6 the recommended serving
Dairy: This looks like a good serving, maybe on the low side
TOTAL: Low in calories, low in carbs (particularly simple carbs from fruit), barely make protein

If you doubled your protein and (at least) quadrupled your fruit you would be a lot closer:
Calories: 280 -> 390
Carbs: 33 -> 43
Protein: 27 -> 38
Fat: 5 -> 7
