Do you guys do 1g per lb of body weight all year round? I'm cutting right now and stick to 1g, when I bulk I also stick to 1g. I'm usually either bulking or cutting, there isn't really much else you can do. Is there any negative effects to 1g per lb of body weight?

1g/lb is the norm. When I hear high protein, I think more in the 1.5-2g/lb range. 1g/lb is perfectly healthy and doable year round.

keep protein the same, just drop carbs to cut

Gotcha, thanks, that answers any questions.

Wouldnt it be better to up protein and cut carbs when cutting? Seems it would help preserve mass?

Yes and no, but after a point, excess protein will be turned to glucose anyhow, so it's gets to be a waste. You'd be better off going moderate carb/protein, and upping your expenditure a bit more, and focus on timing the carbs right.
