I go with the "follow your own schedule" on this one, because I think it can be very based on what you are doing that day, how many hours you are up and about, how much sleep you got etc.
For example, on weekends, I like to have a bit of a sleep in with a lazy morning. Wake up at nine, read my novel, hang around in bed, sip a pot of tea- I usually don't end up eating until noon, and then I end up eating just two meals a day for Saturday/Sunday. Week days I tend to be out the door by 7 am and not back until late, so I need more frequent food to keep me feeling energized and satisfied- probably three meals, maybe one snack. This works for me, as it fits with my schedule and it's what makes me feel good. My boyfriend eats more frequently than me- he doesn't have the time to sit down and dig into a big meal in the middle of the day, so he just eats when he can and doesn't worry too much about the timing.
Eat when your hungry in a way that works with your schedule. Don't worry too much about trying to follow a pre-set plan.
