Default

At least 1g per lb of bodyweight. AT LEAST. The only exception I would ever make to this is if you are cutting. In that case it would be lower (by necessity, to allow you to get at least some fat and/or carbs as well for energy), with plenty of BCAA's to help make up the difference. If you are looking to add strength then the 1g/lb of bodyweight rule is starting point. If you are looking to add mass then I would go even higher, probably at least 200g.

If you are eating 3000 cals a day and following a standard 40-30-30 macro split then that would put you at 225g of protein, which would be a good number to stick too.
