    How much protein do I need while cutting?

    I'm cutting at around 2200 calories (given that I'm a big guy and exercising most days, this is around an 800+ deficit). I'm also lifting and running (mix of interval and jog) 5 times a week.

    I'm getting in about 120 g of protein a day, sometimes more. I'm not using powders or anything (just because I haven't bought any, not moral opposition). How much protein should I be aiming for? How do you recommend I get it without wildly exceeding calorie limits?

    1.5 g/lb during a caloric deficit.

    Looks like you're not getting enough calories or protein. Also make sure to get 0.3-0.5 g/lb fat and the rest in carbs.

    I'm 230, around 35% bf, and I know 230 is ostensibly optimal, but I have no clue how I can get close to that while keeping my calorie limit.

    if your not getting enough protien,atleast 1g/per lb. then you could sacrifice preserving muscle on a cut.

    Im 164Lbs (On a cut ATM) and i get 190gr a day. And that includes my post-workout prot shake.

    Like everyone said, aim for 1-1,5gr per body weight.

    EDIT: At that weight, I'd aim for at least 220gr of protein. And you can easily up your cals intake to 2500 per day. You will still loose noticeable amounts of fats especially if you are active everyday.

    Keep it up!

    I never once went over 180g of protein a day. And never has that stalled my progress in any possible way.

    1g per lb LBM, which would be 150 in your case.

    It will all depend on how many carbs you're taking in. If your carbs are too low you'll convert protien to carbs and be in a protien depleted state.

    Less carbs = more protien
