I'm having to take a week off, thanks to my brother coming to visit and giving me the flu, as I won't be working out for 5-7 days, should I reduce my protein intake slightly until I'm well enough to lift again , say from 190 grams a day to 140 grams?

I would say try to keep your protein high considering your mucles may still be rebuilding up to 7 days after an intense workout.

bics56 is right, keep the protein intake up high everyday... no matter what.
