I just looked at a wikiedpia article and your dinner should way at least 4.3 million grams to avoid instant death and humiliation.

There are approximatley 12 medium slices in a loaf of bread unless fatty is cutting the loaf.

An average meal... I'd say about 350-600g.

My average meal... closer to 1000g.

I don't think it would be wise to weigh your meal in grams but to rather calorie count your meals.

Saying this, some meals are heavier and more denser than others but still pack near enough the same calories.

I'd say my main meal of the day is about 500-600g. That's what I estimate for when cooking - really useful when trying to estimate how much to serve if doing different courses...

It really all depends on who you are, what you're trying to acheive, what you're eating, which meal you're eating, how active you are, etc. There's no set answer.

A body-builder is going to eat far more than the average person. Someone with a physical job will eat more than someone with a sedentary job. I don't eat big meals but I eat 5 times a day, plus snacks.

What are you trying to achieve?

let 'w' equal your weight in grams. your dinner should weigh using this eqaution , (w^2)/90 . The answer is your recommended weight in grams

In a medium sliced loaf there are about 20 slices still.

Good answer. My meals weigh in the range you have specified. Just can not have more than 600gms.
