Any ads of weekly feeding of boas?

I see lots of breeders still only feeding mice to 1 y/o boas and wonder why. Most of my reading and learning said boas hit 3 at year one. All my babies do reach that on weekly feeding of appropriate sized rats. I dont use mice often. Occasionally a new born wont take a day old pinky rat and Ill get live mice for a few feedings.
Ive always fed weekly. Even my lg adults get a lg rat weekly. I never had a fat boa except a coral female that was 8+ by 3 years old when I bought her. She was round bodied unlike my 7 females. Both pictured.

Are my boas gonna die at an early age if feed weekly on a lg rat? Ive always taken them outside to exercise at min of once a week. Id hate to have a boa die because she/him was fed too much.

Any links about feeding and life length?

I bought a baby this year that was tiny for his age. But with regular feeding, hes now getting a little size. Hes a whooping 26 at over a year old.
