How can those of us who have fast metabolism take advantage of it?? and does this mean that I can eat a meal 20 min preowrkout, or would it be better if I eat earlier?

A fast metabolism won't change the speed at which your food is digested in the GI tract. So you still need to eat at the same times as the rest of us.The first rule of cheat club is you do not talk about cheat club. The second rule of cheat club is you DO NOT talk about cheat club. Third rule of cheat cub, someone yells stop!, goes limp, taps out, the cheat is over. Fourth rule, one cheat at a time, fellas. Fifth rule, cheats will go on as long as they have to. And the sixth and final rule, if this is your first night at cheat club, you have to cheat.

Metabolism is a process of combining nutrients and oxygen to provide energy. The higher your metabolism the more energy your body burns, this includes working out and resting/sleeping.
There are no real advantages of a faster metabolism apart from the ability to lose weight and requiring more food to maintain your current weight.
The only advantage I can think of is that you may have more avaliable energy at any one time, but if your body requires more then it doesn't really make a difference...
The benefit of eating more often however is different.

when someone says their metabolism is fast theyre most likely describing it relative to their comfortable or desirable food intake. So someone who feels sick eating more than 1500 cals a day might think their fairly average bmr of 2500 is very fast, for example.
Advantage of having a "fast" metabolism as you surely have noticed is youre unlikely to gain fat. Why do u need to ask us about this. You may be able to gain muscle and very little fat, so never really have to cut. Others, with a "slow" metabolism are ALLWAYS trying to cut, and attempts to raise calories result in rapid fat gain5'11", 187lbs, 19 y/o
