You're right: it's a personal journey. You have to find out what works for you.
I used to be very content eating only two meals a day. I didn't snack much at all, and I was rarely hungry. I've developed some GI troubles since then though, and now I can't eat a "real" meal - I can only eat a tiny amount at a time. So that means I'm eating numerous times a day, which really doesn't appeal to me. But it's the only recourse I have.
It might help you to keep a log of what you eat, when you eat it, and how you feel afterwards. And when you get hungry again. That should help you determine what's healthy *for YOU*. What works for one isn't necessarily the right thing for anyone else.
So long as you're giving your body the proper nutrients to support its functions, I don't think the timing is critical (unless you're diabetic!). After all... our heritage isn't based on clock-hours for meals.
...the problem with people these days is
they've forgotten we're really just animals ...
We did not create the web of life; we are but a strand in it.
We don't have souls. We ARE souls. We have bodies.
