I can only speak out of personal experience here, but I think he may be right. I've noticed that I gain less fat when I eat a late breakfast/early lunch consisting of eggs and veggies only. I only eat three meals. The second is around 4 to 6PM depending on my scheduel. Here I add potatoes to whatever protein source I eat, and of course more veggies. The last I eat around 23PM. It's a mixture of cottage cheese, berries, cacao powder, fruits, a moderate amount of nuts and a whey shake with probiotic milk. I find that the carbs from the fruits and berries make me sleep better.
Last year it was more the other way around and I had a higher meal frequency. That is carbs came early, fats came late, although I did not separate them completely, and am still not "anal" about that. Calories were roughly the same. This year I weigh around 12 pounds less while bulking. I'm a little stronger, and I look better in the mirror. Take it for what it's worth.
