The only thing I would mention at this time is the protein stuff. I would love to see just ONE scientific source of information on how much protein any one person can metabolize at a different time. I am most certain that it doesn't exist. I know you have probably read statements to the effect but it is only based on myths and assumptions. A better recommendation would be 1.3 to 1.5 grams per pound a day. 5 or 6 meals would certainly be ideal but the main thing is to get enough. The amount of protein you yourself say you need is about half of what you should be going for. Likewise the idea of all excess protein being stored as fat is erroneous.

Since most major food sources of protein contain more than enough of the essential aminos then there is not reason to believe, based on our knowledge at this point, that one source is better than another, aside from absorption rates which may be a factor (fast absorption being advantages) for post workout.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.
