i think a lot of protein, specifially meat, depends on the 
local culture.  i live in a carnivore barony (dare i say 
kingdom) and i always budget for more meat than usually 
suggested.  i also tend to do the reverse of what most 
folks do, and put out my good/expensive meat first. 
 hopefully it is all eaten and the chicken is what gets 
picked on in the third course.

i think you will find the math for your portioning becomes 
a living, growing thing as you get your fingers on the 
foodie-pulse of your area.
