Protien amounts

Hello again all :-)
When we work out the amount of protien needed alot of us use the ratio of 1.5 grams of protien to 1lb of body weight ...
Would you say that this should be worked out using estimated lean body weight or total body weight ?? When on a bulking cycle the 2 can be quite diferent in my case. lol.

    generally total body weight

    the only time i would suggest otherwise is when BF% is at eiter end of the extremes

    Cheers TT, I'm guessing that my BF% is over 20 at the moment. Don't want to start cutting till end of AAS cycle and PCT though. Seems that I'm eating a lot of protien every meal (6 times a day) and don't know if I'm making use of it ( ie: how much can my body use in 1 go sort of thing)...
