I work nights, long nights. 12 to 16 hour shifts. I am a nursing supervisor for a busy hospital. I am the only night supervisor, and I am in charge of all the units right from ER to OR, L & D to Med/surg.
It is so hard to stick to anything because my meals are never at the same time. Often I have to eat on the run, so easy to just pick fast food and go.
My weight loss is always slow and not unusual to gain 5 pounds in a night even thou I hardly ate anything. Fluid retention is a problem. I can go on the same diet as friend that are not night workers, eat exactly the same things, and I will gain and they will lose. Anyone else have this problem? What can I do, what do you do?
