For the purposes of working out protein requirement I'm saying I want to be 16-18% bf at my goal weight. So my lean mass will be 84-82% of my goal weight (or if that's a lot lower than your current weight use your current weight or you could be too low on protein). Then if you are very active use 1 g per resulting lb, less active you can probably go nearer 0.7 g.
