Hey everyone! I was hoping to get some advice about on my eating schedule. I work at a Hospital, and I work 3 days a week (12 hour shifts). More often than not I'm on night shift which is 6 pm - 6 am. I can eat at work, but didn't want to because I know this is the time frame I really shouldn't be eating.
Does this still apply to me? Usually the digestive system is slowing down at this time because you are sleeping, but I'm not sleeping. Should I treat the 12 hours I am awake at work as if it were my normal day?
Like today, I slept until about 11. I just ate "breakfast" at 12:30. I probably won't have lunch as I am going to try to get a couple more hours of sleep before work. I plan to eat salmon and broccoli for dinner around 5. I was planning to take a yogurt and some other light snack to have around 7. I know this isn't necessarily good because I am skipping a meal and overall not eating THAT much during the day, but what would you suggest?
Eat larger meals? Eat later? Force myself to wake up to eat?
