    At least 1g per lb LBM. A lot of people take in more.

    good god! lol, well i am 255 right now, but i am trying to slim down....what is the calorie intake for someone my size trying to cut some weight...3000 cals? or 4200? I know to loose weight you have to use more calroies then you take in....but i am just now getting into counting calories. Do you know where i can learn to count them and find out what is worth what?

    its 1g/LBM. you weigh 255. You need to subtract your bodyfat weight and thats your protein requirement. As for losing weight you need to know what your maintence cals are (cant gain or lose a lb eating this amount) and take a 20% deduction of this. If you want a good starting point for a cut, take 12x BW.

    Also remember you need 0.5g/LBM of healthy fats.
    Fill up the rest of your cals with carbs,protein,fat as you like.

    Calculate it as if you are at 25% and then use it as a minimum.

    That would be 191 grams/day.
