In brief: Wrong question

The number of meals does not matter, is the total calories you consume.
By taking in fewer calories than you need, you will lose weight. Rough formula-weight in pounds x 10= number of calories needed per day. By decreasing your intake by 500 cal/day you can lose 1 pound per week.
