There are people who subscribe to "intermittent fasting" and gotten great results. They do it out of convenience and think eating 6 equally sized meals is overkill and requires way too much thought/effort.
You could try it out and see what effect it has on your body/physique. Each individual is truly different and responds differently.
I just think if you ate the HUGE meal at 9 am by 4 pm you would be hungry again and may lead to overeating. Then you are adding in PWO meal. You might eat more calories than you really need.

You are saying that there would be gains but the gains could be maximized with better nutrient "timing" so to say. Do you mean like eating something with quick energy right before a workout so that you have more energy to lift more efficiently therefore increasing gains or is there more to it than that?
Insulin response post workout to blunt cortisol and shuttle nutrients toward damaged tissue is another one.
More importantly, read the articles I reference. I just give the summary page. I cite everybody so you can read the stuff and draw your own conclusions.
