Plan: Warrior LC
I think you are on the right track with finding your own way. You build your own WOL/WOE and it looks to me you enter a new stage where you combine knowledge from others with your own experience and feelings.
That must be good, whichever road will come out of this

Right, that is what is advised by some. In an articel in T-mag an personale implementation from the WD was presented with a 3-meal overeating period.
7pm to one hour before bedtime
* Large lettuce salad with raw, low-glycemic vegetables
* Protein, one to two pounds of lean beef, chicken, fish, etc.
* Steamed vegetables (any kind)
* Brown or wild rice
* Fresh fruit (optional)
* For seasoning, use two to three teaspoons of any good oil (olive, safflower, EFA), spices, lemon juice, tomato sauce, etc.
* Eat until full
Dinner 2 (one hour later)
If you're still hungry, go for it! Eat anything you want. Really! You've tempered the effects of what you're going to eat during the second meal because you ate the right stuff in the first dinner. Be honest with yourself, though; if you're stuffed, don't gorge yourself some more. Try eating whatever you have a pang for, too, like pizza, ice cream, even candy. Of course, if you want to, you can be a wuss and make it nonfat frozen yogurt or stewed tomatoes, poached tofu, etc.
Dinner 3 (one hour later)
Once again, if you're still hungry, be my guest. If you can make it this far, you're a bottomless pit. Repeat the recommendations spelled out for the second dinner, and then pass out. The following day, buy a toga and start wearing sandals, because you're one step away from becoming one of those Romans who eats 'till the point of bursting, vomits it all out, and eats again until the slave chicks can't find any more food.
Now this is a bodybuilders site, but their interest for clean food and a diet that burns fat is very intense!!
So I would advise to make you own arrangement in your overeating period, I myself have the evening in general from 18:00 to 24:00, but I adjust eating and timing to my schedule. Normally meat and vegetables at about 18:45, nuts at 19:30 to complete and be satisfied. Around 22:00 or 23:00 I take a vegetable/bean/meat mixture (whatever the fridge has) or some canned fish etc.
