Its a myth that your metabolism slows down after 5 hours in fact in the fasted state your metabolism from a calorie burning point of view speeds up do to a release of catecholamines. It takes a matter of days for the metabolic slow down to occur but other things happen physiologically once liver glycogen is depleted (some where around 16 hours but depends on activity) that is detrimental to lean body mass. Also keep in mind that protein depending on the type is digested quite slowly.
