How much protein should someone take per day if they are trying to cut?
Also, what if a person is overweight (roughly 30 pounds overweight) and is lifting regularly? How much protein should they person be eating per day if they are trying to lose that 30 pounds while still maintaining decent strength.

well weight loss is based on total cals in being less than total cals out.
protein also depends on wether you are carb cycling or doing a keto diet but i would say minimum 1.5g per pound of bodyweight. i weight 215 pound so i have around 330 a day while cutting.
weight 202 - (bf around 14%)
Bench - 286
deadlift - new pr on the 23/12/06 190 kilo (430 pound)

200 pound at 10% bf by next summer
I think that for your average, slow cut (losing 1lb or less a week), 1g per lb of bodyweight is fine.
How much strength you lose (and how much protein you need) depends on how drastically you are dropping cals.
i always take around 300g,,and i am 220lbs
1g/lbs. of bodyweight is a fine rule to go by. No need to over think this.
