Of course you lose weight overnight; unless you're being fed by a drip you are burning calories that you aren't replacing. But it's a classic as a piece of information that helps people justify over-consumption. Not that they need much help with that in the US!
As Billy Connelly says, "I don't care how fat you are, just don't sit next to me on a plane..." and; "If you want to lose weight stop buying food that's served in buckets!"
