The correct answer is it depends (on you). The typical baseline is 1g/lb/bw. Don't just titrate up to this, though. A lot of people--myself included--need a BIG increase in protein to move the needle up. Once you're on the move, then you adjust downward.

I'm a lot less concerned with what some skinny researcher who synthesizes studies says than what has worked for me. Be your own experiment. Aim for 1.5g/lb/bw and titrate downward.

The whey-casein thing is also overstated IMO. If you're not getting your protein, shoot some whey and move on.
