This past year, I continued to lift heavy like I always do and now get between 120-180 g of protein a day. I am gaining strength great right now and I definitely think the extreme high protein diets recommended to many bodybuilders are likely not needed. No harm if you like eating like that (the stress on the kidneys worries are bullshit!) but it isn't a requirement for muscle/strength gains. I still recommend 120-150 g protein for most trying to gain muscle/strength or lose fat.
That's about what I'm doing now. I'm supplementing 30 grams a day, and feel like that should be good.
