I have always interpreted that to mean 42g of protein, not 42g weight of protein.

Some examples: 6 oz steak is 42g, 3.5oz chicken breast is 30g, etc

So, it is a little more flexible than the 8oz of protein you have been having in Phase 1.

As Bella stated, the 42g is the minimum (not a maximum goal) for you.

You will be cutting back from the 8oz at Lunch & Dinner that is part of P2 & P3 if you want to add the fats at lunch and the carbs at dinner, but not all the way back to 1.5oz total.
