Everyone is usually wrong about everything. ;) The thing is, there is no one size fits all way of eating. I don't do well with 6 times a day eating. You eat normally, within a healthy calorie range. Some people find it helpful to eat 5 small meals a day, spreading out their food so they never really have a chance to get hungry. Some eat light during the day, and have a huge dinner. Others eat a huge breakfast, and eat light the rest of the day. Still others do the traditional 3 meals plus snacks. Some eat breakfast, some don't.
None are "right" - none will make you lose more weight than another. What matters is the number of calories you eat, versus the number of calories you burn. Here's the math: www.sparkpeople.com/resource/calorie_calcu
With all of that said, our bodies are not calculators. :)
While you don't have much to lose, you do need more to eat than 1,000 calories. 1,200 is the absolute minimum for most people, and anything less than that you're not providing your body with the adequate nutrition it needs to function.
