Agreed, most everywhere I read it suggests eating your protein divided between however many meals you eat in a day for this very reason. Using lean protein as a snack if required is smart too, like some cold chicken, that way you are eeking out the protein through the eating window. All protein that isn't required for replenishment of muscle and stores is converted to glucose.

Paleobird - that meal was epic in terms of calories and fat load! I don't think you need to get anal about every last ounze or dropping the bacon but perhaps moderation and smaller more frequent (relatively speaking) meals is the answer here.
Thanks for posting this one I think it's given a lot of us a chance to really examine the process again and to use critical thinking and that can only be a good thing.
