    Say you don't lift between Sunday and Thursday.

    You literally don't do **** physically. Do you still need to eat high protein diet (during light cutting phases), or is it ok to eat 25-50% less on say Wednesday and TUesday.

    I'd say it's more important to consume high levels of protein during off-days because it's those days when your muscles are recovering the most and need the most nutrients.

    After 24-48 hours surely its all done and dusted? whats logic for eating more protein 3 days after lifting?

    Eat less food, sure- if you're not trying to gain weight/strength.

    Keep the macros the same though. If you're going to drop something drop carbs.
