A couple months ago, I enrolled in the ISSA's Certified Personal Training(CPT) course. I've grown tired of my current employment field, and decided to become certified as a personal trainer, being as exercise and weight lifting has been a major part of my weekly life going all the way back to my teens. Dieting/nutrition part of it though, is the main part that I have little experience in. I'd like to gain some personal experience in it using myself as the test subject before advising it to prospective clients in the future.
Something from the ISSA textbooks I wanted to get clarification on. In the nutrition chapter of my Tactical Athlete training textbook, it says that, for someone to maintain muscle mass whilst cutting bodyfat, they'd need eat 0.8 to 1.2 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight. The clarification I seek on this, as the textbook was missing it, is this: would that 'per pound of bodyweight' be the weight I had when I first start the weight loss diet and training regimen, or would it be per pound of bodyweight that you have that day(i.e., what you wake up weighing as)?
Given the many bodybuilders and personal trainers that make up the GLL community, I figured this be the best place to get the clarification, as I intended to do Chris' fatloss diet again in conjunction with using Gorilla Mind's A2 AM and cAMP PM fat burners, along with the Barleans' greens formula and the Xtend BCAA formula Chris suggests. I wanted to know, with me using the GLL fatloss diet for getting in shape for Spring and Summer and gain to some personal experience with dieting for my future personal training career, if that 0.8-1.2 grams per bodyweight is going to be a fixed number throughout the dieting timeframe, or it needs to be adjusted based on what the scale displays over time.

I didn't think the "Get Hung" guide would have girls eyeing my bulge. It did.
I didn't think that your exercise and diet advice would have girls checking me out. It did.
I DEFINITELY didn't think that your hair-loss prevention would fix my hairline. Not in a billion years. It mother fucking did. You saved me a crazy amount of time, a ton of money, unnecessary pain, and destroyed my #1 source of anxiety. DESTROYED IT.
