    Protein

    I've read that the body will slow down protein movement through the digestive tract in order to process most of it vs carbs that move through at a constant place. Any truth to this?

    Yep, it's called the ileal brake IIRC.

    Tends to only happen with large meals. For the most part, speed of digestion is not something to worry about unless you are diabetic - then you might worry about glycemic loads and how fast they are absorbed.

    More wondering about bigger post workout protein supplement and getting more of my protein early vs stretching it out all day.

    Ideally you would break protein up into roughly equal sized feedings about 3 or 4 hours apart. So about 3-5 of those per day. Pre or post workout timing is not that important since protein synthesis is elevated for at least the next day after a workout.
