Let's compare the health/fitness level of those of us who do intermittent fasting on this board to the rest. Nutritionism is fad based. It's their job to keep the pendulum of what's healthy swinging and ever moving because it sells books and funds research. The current paradigm (which is currently shifting as evidenced by all the Warrior/Paleo/IF diets on the fringe which will likely soon become prevalent thinking for a period) is on the grazing/small portions side of things, but it won't stay that way permanently as some new fad will come out soon (like IF).

That being said, I'm not discounting the "graze all day" method of weight control and nutrition. I think it works for some people, but I also think people have a tendency to underestimate the calorie count of their "grazing." This then leads to a difficulty in losing weight.

The bottom line is that weight loss is calories in vs. calories out. There are many different ways to achieve this, Intermittent Fasting just works well for a lot of people and is extremely simple.
