I am trying to improve my understanding so as to overcome a fat loss plateau. I'm interested to know if anyone knows if there is any good evidence that says it's best to eat fat/protein/veg at particular times of day. I'm persuaded that meat and nuts (per Poliquin) works for breakfast, but other than that I lack understanding. Thoughts anyone?

This article suggested protein intake skewed more toward the evening may offer some benefits... although if you're exercising earlier in the day, then should probably eat a protein-rich meal then as well.

If you lift then I happen to think that Martin Berkhan was definitely onto something with his Leangains program which entails timing the bulk of your daily nutrition post-workout.
Beyond that I do not believe that timing plays as large a role as tradition would have you believe ('always eat breakfast', 'never eat 2h before bed', etc.). Rather, average daily net intake with the timing based solely upon the demands of your schedule (I.E. if you have work, followed by class, followed by a workout then you should probably throw a chunk of your daily calories down the hatch at the beginning of the day to keep you sharp).
