was wondering if napping after meals would decrease fat loss? actually, its more like going back to sleep after breakfast for around an hour or so.. can anyone tell me more about this?
When you sleep you metabolic rate drops so yes it will hinder fat loss and assist in fat gain.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths . Proverbs 3:5-6
The idea of sleeping after meals is actually used by sumo wrestlers to gain weight, so I think it proves pretty effective for them lol.

haha yeah thats why sumo wrestlers take long naps are their big meal.
Thats why they say don't go to bed within 2 hours after your last meal.

Busting your balls. True life is one of the only passable MTV shows now that Rob and Big is over.
I usually take a nap 30 minutes or so after my post-WO meal.

Totally depends on how much you eat. If it's less than your BMR you will still burn fat when sleeping. If it's higher, you will build muscle/gain fat.
