You have 3300 calories, that extra 300 wouldn't be absorbed until the 27-28 hour mark. Basically all it means is you can be couple hundred calories over or under and if you account for it the next day by eating more/less it all balances out. Since muscles remain stimulated for 24-48 hours after they have been trained the over under is irrelevant, net amount is what matters.
As you said you really have one heavy day and since zig zagging doesn't do anything unless you have more than one day off in a row from training. Since you have been doing it you know if you like it better then just going roughly equal calories daily, it's basically an extension of meal timing (1 vs 3 vs 6 meals) it ultimately doesn't matter which is baffling lol. SO I was just saying that if it becomes a pain at some point like it did for me, don't waste sleep or time thinking about it like I did.
I see what you're saying, even if I don't necessarily agree that it makes a system like this useless.
