You don't have to quit all protein when taking levadopa. Just don't eat a burger an hour before taking your meds. Take your Levodopa, wait at least 30 minutes and then eat the protein. It is also better to eat smaller meals. Big meals (and I mean the big holiday meals) don't seem to clear enough before the next dose.
