Our expert says:
The portion sizes for protein foods are actually much smaller than the ones you mention! 30 g for meat and fish and 1 x 50 g egg. The 100g portions you mention are multiples of the 30 g suggested portions. In general adults only require about 3 protein portions a day, thus 1 egg plus 60 g meat of tuna or chicken. South Africans tend to overeat when it comes to protein. Also keep in mind that low-fat milk, yoghurt and cottage cheese are all sources of excellent protein. The portion sizes for dairy products are 1 cup for milk and yoghurt and 1/2 cup for cottage cheese.
