Also, I saw this IP diet review video recently (one of the more decent ones in my opinion) and he mentions having 5oz of red meat, but he did specify that was just for him/his weight.

As I always say, "follow the sheet"
The newest available sheet (from June 2012) states 8oz (measured raw) dinner protein, no matter what kind you choose. It makes sense, because 8oz of fish, chicken, beef and pork are all right around 40-50g protein. 5oz beef might be higher in calories, but it's about 2/3 the correct amount of protein.
As I'm sure you noticed, coaches and clients alike tweak the program - sometimes it works, sometimes it backfires. That's why I say listen to your body - it will tell you if you've gone too far by not rewarding you on the scale
