You are correct about completely skipping a meal.

Works for me.
And you are correct about substituting a few small meals for a big meal... You eat less total, and many small meals teach your body that food is plentiful, and doesn't leave a lot of extra calories at one sitting that it needs to store as fat because it knows that's way more energy than it needs at the moment.
