The issues I had with your post I noted and specified that I had placed in bold.
You are incorrect about your point on the body going into a "famine" after several hours of not eating; that is false and a common myth.
Meal timing is completely irrelevant; it all comes down to daily intake, both on a caloric and macro nutrient level. Whether it comes from one huge meal (which would be difficult), 8 small ones, or 3 balanced meals.
Some find it easier to eat smaller meals throughout the day because they binge when hungry. Other's cannot consume enough calories in 3 sittings to sustain a surplus.
All in all, do what works for you,
just please do not preach the idea of a "famine."
