I'm pretty sure this is an imagined advantage, though a lot of people swear by it and I used to do it when I was wrestling. When you feed people a precise number of calories in a lab it always causes weight loss when the calories are low (usually 800-1200) which makes me think that when the scale is not moving it's a lot more likely we miscounted the calories, or gained lean body mass than we aren't eating enough.
The TOM thing is obviously a unique challenge that I have no idea about and probably affects everyone differently, but the scale certainly stalls for men as well even at times when you're convinced you've eaten identically to the previous day.
