It’ about goddamn time. New York Times nonetheless.
What I find frustrating is that he says “some” studies have found health benefits with smaller meals, when the opposite is true as well. And not to mention, while some studies found an insignificant increase in metabolic rate with a dozen mini-meals per day, the great majority of meal frequency studies actually point in favor of lower meal frequencies as noted in a widely cited review of the topic (but the difference is statistically insignificant). It’s puzzling that the high meal frequency myth has managed to survive for so long.

And if you love me, make sure you tweet the shit out of this.
