have you looked into leangains? it's a bodybuilding/cutting approach that deals with many of your meal timing questions.
i'm not a bodybuilder, but i follow the sport. one thing i've noticed - the advice out there in magazines seems to reflect what the pros do. that's all fine and well, accept they're not always super clear that the pros are taking a lot of drugs! no judgement on my end, i'm just saying that the recommendations on eating are based on a hormonal environment that's not natural. same goes for the recovery times, set & rep schemes, and cardio.
beyond that, bodybuilding is not at all about health, it's about appearance and peaking at a certain time. it's not performance, it's not health, and it's not longevity. this puts it at odds with paleo. i do think you could merge paleo foods to a bodybuidling template though. why not? you can measure, count & way everything.
and re. js290, the guy that posts links to the same shit on every thread, without commentary... yeah, s/he's pretty much useless.

"dean ornish and dr. davis think the palmitic acid our bodies use for fuel while we sleep is poison if we eat it. zero-carbers like charles washington think the oldest fuel in our evolutionary history – glucose - used by organisms a billion years ago and without which the brains of modern mammals cannot survive for more than a few minutes – is an unnatural toxin if you eat it. both views ignore basic facts of medical physiology and defy evolutionary history." - kurt harris
