Re: Regular Diet and Nutrition (Working Late/Night Shift)

I worked a night shift when I was younger but don't remember too much about how I adjusted my meals. I'm sure there will be a "lunch time" after about 4 hours of work. That's pretty standard. So, all your other meals should revolve around that. You need to eat a meal before you go to work so you don't get hungry before the designated "lunch time". Then, when you get home from work, you will likely be hungry again. So, you eat something. You might need to change the order as follows. 1) dinner before going to work 2) lunch at work and 3) breakfast when you get home from work.

As far as what to eat for health: You should always eat healthy meals regardless of your working hours. That would be natural whole foods rather than processed foods. Eat lots of fresh fruit, vegetables, whole (unprocessed) grains, legumes etc..
