I aim for .5 to .7 grams per pound of body weight. There doesn’t seem to be much scientific evidence to support the recommendation for a full gram per pound of body weight, although for most people it couldn’t really hurt. I don’t go that high for four reasons. 1) I can make gains with half that amount, 2) I enjoy my food better with less protein, 3) I save money, and 4) I have better digestion and feel better overall. `
