I have been weight training for over a decade. I have made some significant gains in muscle mass, yet I have rarely if ever followed strict high protein intake.
I am now going into a cutting phase, trying to get rid of body fat. Some of my friends swear by this high protein intake rule, IE 1 gram per lean body mass etc. I am going to reduce my calorie intake, and he insists that I need to keep my protein intake at that level. Because of my previous experience of not sticking to all these high protein intake rules, I am not so sure.
Thoughts on this? Is there any scientific studies proving that you will loose muscle mass by having a low protein intake, or has anyone really noticed a significant difference?
It's a minimum of about 55g, according to some wise old owl on here...

yes boys!!! I always knew even back in the old school GNC days that all this huge protein intake crap wasn't nessecary. Thanks for all the replies, you've made my day knowing I don't have to shovel stupid amounts of powder into my gullet whilst cutting.
