Today, I am running into an issue. I know one day will not make or break me, but I would like to know the most appropriate answer for when this situation rises.
I work in industrial engineering at a manufacturing facility, and sanitation occurs from 7pm to 7am. I have been tasked to observe the process for a day and determine if it is efficient. If it is not, I will be doing a lot more of these days trying to fix the process.
I work 8-5 normally, so today I woke at 9am after trying my best to stay up late last night and sleep in. This means I will be awake from 9am this morning to 9am or later tomorrow.
How do I eat in a situation that I am awake for 24 hours? I feel as though the same calories I eat when awake 14 hours simply won't cut it. Do I continue to eat small healthy meals after "dinner" at 6pm? Should I adjust my caloric intake up or just eat extremely light (only protein and veggies) all day?
I'm very easily discouraged, and an increase in weight from this would bother me greatly.
