From research that I have read on pubmed, and other sources, they say a typical sedentary individual requires roughly .6g per pound of LBM. And I've read anywhere from .8-1.2g for athletes. Again, context of the individual.

For my personal opinion; you can't really go wrong consuming 1-1.5g as long as calories are adequate (context).
right on the money(:
