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.
This was a very good point thanks! Boy does it add up fast though - I put a typical day of food in Fitday and got over 100 grams of protein! Chicken, Greek yogurt, cheese, etc. of course the carbs add up just as quickly!
