Wouldn't you be able to test if protein turns into glucose by testing your blood sugar?

Wouldn't that also depend on the amount of muscle you are trying to feed? What happens to the excess?

There would be so many variables involved, how can that statement to be true?
An oz of a protein food has between 6 and 8 grams of protein.

Someone with more muscle mass could handle more than 4 oz protein. Some of it would be used for protein exchange in the body. Some would be used to make hormones. Some would be stored as glycogen in the muscle tissues.

Some conditions increase the need for protein. Wound healing, growing, and being in the process of losing weight/redefining body composition are examples of these.

That being said, I do agree (and more importantly, so does Phinney) that spreading out protein throughout the day is a good idea.
