Generally twice a day is morning and around twelve hours later with a snack at night. Because this works day to day, set a time and be close to it an hour either way. 8am breakfast and 8pm late dinner, or snack, for example.
Erratic eating causes weight gain. Also does not regulate insulin well. Something to consider.
Is metoprolol ordered with meals? I'm assuming he's diabetic and he should not be having erratic mealtimes. Doctors assume that most people eat meals a specific time apart. Metformin should be taken around the meal.
