Why is it beneficial to spread protein intake throughout the day?

Spreading out your protein intake throughout the day, rather than consuming it in large amounts in one or two meals, helps maintain consistent muscle protein synthesis rates, contributing to better muscle growth and repair, and it also aids in maintaining a feeling of fullness to help manage hunger and weight.
