I would say ... it depends.
For some people it doesn't and for some it does. For me, I find that my weight loss is more consistent if I spread my meals out throughout the day (3 meals and 2 or 3 snacks). I also find that if I limit carbs at night, I tend to lose weight more steadily.
Some people are fine with 3 meals. Or even 1 meal. Some people can eat carbs at 10 p.m. and never have a problem. Some people can't eat after 8 p.m. or they stall.
We're all weird little biological contructs marching to our own drummers.
Mostly I think it takes experimenting and figuring out what works for you and then sticking with that.
