1 gram of protein per kg bodyweight is right at the recommended amount so you're fine there. Weight training more will have a greater effect of maintaining muscle mass than just protein alone.

What effort level are maintaining in your cardio workouts? Low carb intake can make aerobic work difficult as you deplete glycogen stores in your body.
