TRUE

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.
DEPENDENT ON GOAL

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.
ITS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE EASY

All in all, do what works for you,
AGREEE 100%
Strength Training, 3 Meals > 6 Meals

"After multiple regression analysis the 3 meal group had a significant greater gain in lean body mass (LBM) than the 6 meal group when adjusted for gender and energy intake (p=0.04), when adjusted for gender and protein intake (p=0.03), and when adjusted for gender, protein intake, carbohydrate intake and fat intake."

And ...

"In this study, three meals per day resulted in larger muscle gain from strength training than six meals per day over a period of twelve weeks."
