Protein Requirements

Does anyone have any insight to why the protein requirements are so low? I don't want to overeat protein, but as I have been reading "The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Performance" I came across the chapter on protein and it suggests that my protein needs are at least twice what the cronometer tells me. I work out about 6 days a week - various different workouts and I am not sure I am getting enough protein. If I eat just two chicken wings a day, I am done with meat as by the time I eat other sources of protein and add the trace amounts of protein that I get from other sources, I easily hit my 43 grams. This seems very low to me? Any thoughts?
