    Sleeping between meals

    Hi! My trainer gave me a healthy diet, and in order to keep my metabolism in good shape, I only eat every 3 hours.
    Because it's summer, I'm getting less sleep at night and so in order to have all my meals during the day, I sleep between my meals, so my schedule looks something like this:


    Breakfast (first meal)
    3 hours of sleeping
    Snack (second meal)
    3 hours of sleeping
    Lunch (third meal)

    And after lunch/meal 3 I stay up. Is this bad to do, will it slow down my weight loss, or is it fine? Because one of my friends say that this is bad to do.
    Thank you in advance! (:

    Your metabolism doesn't slow down if you don't eat for 3 hours, massive broscience that trainers for some reason still try to push. There's no problem with sleeping as far as I know, and if there is it'll be so miniscule as to make no difference.

    All that really matters is you're in a calorie deficit. Do that in as many or as few meals as you like, with as much sleep at whatever times as you like.

    How much do you weigh that you're wanting to lose at 16?
