slow down there, professor. metabolism is a pretty fancy word. i had to wiki it.

Metabolism is the set of chemical reactions that occur in living organisms in order to maintain life.
so what youre saying is that by 'fasting the whole night' (translation: not eating dinner), you are essentially stopping the physiological processes that are necessary to stay alive. in other words, if you dont eat dinner, you run the risk of dying in your sleep. dinner sounds like sewious bidness.

is this why people recommend eating 5-6 meals per day as well? does this stoke the metabolic fire, so to speak?
