Plus it could encourage people to overconsume or underconsume.
Overconsuming by way of some people having just too many calories for their own good with each meal. Underconsuming by having what they perceive as adequate to last several hours, then to find it was inadeqwuate and they end up for 1-2 hours feeling hungry and possibly snacking or picking at food.
The guy talking about this on your link, doesn't seem to differentiate between people who exercise and those who don't, as your bodies metabolism will react differently to nutrition when you workout versus when you don't.
Small frequent meals can seem to some like something not to daunting to eat and easier to manage and whilst the guy points out ceeral companies and snack bars are peddled as between meal snacks and people don't have time to cook 6 meals a day, you can eat snacks like Nuts, Peanuts, Low Fat Cheese, Sandwiches, pre-prepared Boiled Eggs and Chicken Breasts, Packet Chicken, Beef, Turkey and Ham, Yoghurt, small Microwavable snacks and soups in a pot, so you don't have to be cooking 6 times a day anyway.
