Fasting for a Physical?

I have a physical next week at 9a.m. and was instructed to fast for 12 hours prior! Nothing to eat after 9pm the night before. The longest I have gone with out eating is 3 hours in years. What is the purpose of the fast?

Should I load up on Metabolic Drive with it’s long digesting micellar casein @ 9pm or with this alter any results that the Dr. is looking to obtain? Kinda freaked out over the 12 hours with out food…

DONT EAT!!! it one damn night it won kill you or stall progress have what ever you usually do at night and dotn eat again’'the purpose is to get accurate blood results of Cho. levels and maybe a fasted glucose test etc.

BS. So the longest you’ve ever slept without waking up to eat is less than 3 hours in years?
