I see some foods fall under protein as well as carbs, if I eat one
serving of quinoa, does that count for a serving of carbs and protein?
or do i need to eat two servings to count it twice?
Thanks!

excellent question! 

For these specials foods (like quinoa) that can essentially go both ways (as a protein or carb), use them as either, but only count it as ONE. For example 1 serving of quinoa can be 1 serving of carbs or 1 serving a protein -- but not a serving of both (treating it that way would knock off 100 calories you still need to eat). I like two eat two servings, and treat 1 as a carb and 1 as a protein; but this is not required.
