There are many studies & articles reporting that your friend's methods can lead to better weight loss. It goes along with the long-time theory that people should eat a large breakfast (with a lot of complex carbs in it along w/protein), a smaller lunch and an even smaller dinner giving one lots of nutrition/energy in the beginning of the day and tapering off in the evening when it will be time for bed soon.
The Western diet does this in reverse often skipping breakfast when we really need some fuel for the day, having a big lunch & a huge dinner...then often becoming inactive at night watching TV or whatever as our day winds down. In this eating style people often don't burn off many of the calories they consumed.
So, I don't think it is in her head.
