Default I get more protein when I'm more active

It really depends on my activity levels. Recently I haven't been doing too much movement so I'm probably (guess) getting around 50-70g/day. This has come from my morning oatmeal with protein added, cheese (love plain mozzarella), and a small amount of meat, lentils, and different types of beans. Small amounts come from vegetables too.

When I'm more active (lifting weights 4 times a week, some form of cardio every day) I try to get minimum 100g, shooting for 130g/day. Usually this involves, in addition to the above, more protein powder (mixed into milk), more meat, eggs, and more beans and veggies. Hm.... I guess that's more food in general =]

My rules:
1) eat real food - more vegetables, moderate meat, moderate fruits, less grains, less sugar, less vegetable oils.
2) exercise - moderate intensity cardio, sprinting, heavy lifting, dedicated stretching and mobility.
3) live - relax, de-stress, meditate.
