Im 5 6" 170 lbs and on a cut. Todays totals were 1500 cals and 150 grams of protien. How does that sound? A 10 to 1 ratio. Im taking in half to slightly more than half of what i was on a bulk.

I don't understand your break down, is it:

150g protein
15g carbs
94g fat

Cutting your cals in half right from the start is too harsh a drop in my opinion. I would also never drop your protein below 1gm per lb on a cut, on a bulk maybe but protein needs increase as calories decrese.
