How much lemon juice should I put in my marinade?

I like to marinate my meat in a homemade mixture of soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, ground black pepper, and the juice of 2 limes or lemons. I didn’t see how much juice 2 lemons/limes yielded. If I use bottled lemon juice, how much is enough? A cup or so?

    1 medium lemon is about 3 tablespoons, which is about less than a 1/4 cup.

    I am a former chef and a cup will harm the the meat, it will cook it like th fish in the dish named ceviche, only use 1/2 a lemon or 1 lime, it is not nessessary to use so much, and even with that only marinate it for 1-2 hours, not longer, overnight and it will be tough.
