Powerfeeding/overfeeding?

What is the difference between the two? Does powerfeeding fish makes them grow faster?

Power feeding is when you feed multiple times a day, filling the fish to their fullest, having the tank with cranked up heat (In this process, the metabolisms of the fish are working at full speed). Power feeding does make the fish grow faster, but you will need a high power of filtration and enough bacteria to handle it, it could become pretty bad as water quality goes. Really, I wouldnt recommend this process. No need to alter the fishes growth rate, just let nature take its course.

Over feeding them is when they start only skimpily taking food when you try and feed them multiple times, often leaving food in the tank.
