Don't be concerned about the amount of protein in the diet. If she is losing weight while having a good appetite, and is not hyperthyroid, I suspect she is losing protein through the kidneys, which must be replaced. Check this out with a urine exam. Fresh meat and probiotics should normalize her intestines, and if some of the fresh meat is raw beef kidney, this will also help her own kidneys. As to quantities, let her tell you how much of each food item she wants. She won't eat it if is harmful or unappealing to her.
