    It maight be a good idea to keep the protein at reasonable levels to offset any catabolism that you may encounter. I've been out of the gym now for nearly a month and a half, due to surgery, and I'm keeping my protein intake at around 1.5g/lb of LBM

    Good luck

    keep protein and cals up it will help you recover
    cut back only when you want to start losing some of the extra pounds you gained

    Keep your protein up so if you do drop weight it tend to not be lean muscle that is lost.

    def keep protein and cals up bro. you're body is looking to eat up anything possible now that you're off. make sure you adjust you training so that you're not putting your body in an even more catobolic state than it already is
