Our expert says:
No I don't think you are eating too much protein if you have a matchbox size portion of meat, fish or chicken for breakfast and again for lunch, plus 250 ml fat-free yoghurt and about 1 cup of fat-free milk a day. I am pleased that you include the milk and yoghurt as these foods not only provide you with protein, but are also rich in calcium which you require for healthy bones and teeth. 1-2 eggs a week are fine - according to the SA Heart Foundation, adult South Africans can have up to 4 eggs per week.
