Depends . . .: Answer depends upon who you ask and what literature they quote. Also depends upon your goal. And kidney health. Cdc recommends 56g/d for adult men 19-70yo (http://www.Cdc.Gov/nutrition/everyone/basics/protein.Html) regardless of variables. Other sources suggest 0.5-1g/pound/d (http://www.Menshealth.Com/mhlists/guide-to-protein/recommended-protein-intake.Php). Ask for referral to nutritionist.
