Like Rush said, 1.2 - 1.7 grams per lb of body weight. However, I am 190 lbs, and I am only getting in maybe 120 grams a day (at most!) and haven't noticed any strength lose whatsoever. I kind of half and half the whole USDA vs Athlete case study thing.
1.2-1.7 grams per kilogram 120 grams for 190 pounds is within ACSM guidelines.

Thats where a lot of confusion lies tbh, when people confuse lbs for kg and visa versa.
