.  After dinner when we go to sleep our body  utilizes blood glucose and liver glycogen to get energy. During sleep growth hormone  level  and protein  synthesis increases. In early morning liver glycogen, blood glucose, insulin and growth hormone level declines. To prevent a drop in blood glucose stress hormone cortisol released.
