Default Amount of protein seems too high?

Page 174,table 2, says 176lb male dieting strength training(me) should be consuming 264g of protein..is that right or did I miss the part where it says that table is for lbm?

The book is based on bodyweight since that is what all the studies look at. And that is at the absolute high end of the recommendations.

Even the low end would be 246g according to the table, thats alot higher than the recommendations from RFL which I would think shouldn't be considering how low the calories are on a psmf...seems a little confusing and now I'm not sure what my amount should be. What do you think?

I'd say pick an amount between 1 gram and 1.5 grams per pound of bodyweight and don't overthink it.

for me this isn't far from 400g of protein at 1.25g per lb of body weight. That's expensive and quite difficult to eat in one day. Hard life being a big guy

That's the key really, isn't it... Make sure to get plenty of protein in when dieting, and that's probably good enough - to be in some ballpark. Worrying about hitting some precise magic number where your muscles disappear if you miss it even once? That's a path to nowhere good.
