Well I don't know who told you that but they are wrong and if your doing it this way then you are wrong also. Plants don't really eat or drink during lights out so there should be no nutrients or sugars etc etc in the plant. However once lights are on they start feeding, drawing up nutrients through the roots into the plant itself. Try harvesting your next grow at lights out and see the difference in taste and smell also potency. I can assure you you will be pleased with the results if done properly.
If you go to high times magazine they have the exact same article on there forums and not 1 grower (Jorge Cervantes or Urban Grower) or any other master grower harvest during lights on because of this reason.
Find threads on Google - "best time to harvest day or night" and see what results you come across
