it's ok i guess. btw if you're following the '1 gram per pound bodyweight' it's actually '1 gram per pound lean bodyweight' not the total.

what is your goal? if you want to build mass, eat more protein, if you want to lose bf% it's the total calories that matter, but don't lower the protein intake.

don't we all . . .

looking 'cut' means your BF% has to be really low (try 9-10%) which can be achieved with a nazi diet high in protein (to preserve muscle mass) and heavy lifting. however, just wanting to look 'cut' if you have not a lot of muscle will make you look like a concentration camp victim.
concentrating on building quality mass first is a good idea. women don't risk looking 'bulky' (whatever that means) due to lower testosteron levels so go lift some iron :)



all this can take quite some time too.
better prepare for the summer of 2007.

I'd think you'd want to increase protein and calories in general on training days. You certainly wouldn't want less protein.

BUMP, M!!!!!!

I like to keep my protein intake constant on most days. In my opinion it's the carbs you can play around with. Personally, I like to increase my carbs slightly on training days and I try to take the greatest percentage of my daily carbs upto 3 hours POST workout as the body is primed to absorb the carbs during this time AND it helps with recovery.
