Need help planning an eating schedule due to weird work schedule.

I'm having trouble figuring a good eating schedule due to a new work schedule. I work 6pm until 2:30am. The problem is I wake up at 10am and want to eat something, then I want to eat around noon with the family, around 5 for dinner, then again around 10 I'm starving. I didn't plan on it, but I've been eating 4 large meals a day and have gained some weight because of it. I need to drop quite a bit of weight in general. Hopefully somewhere between 100 and 125. I'm looking for any suggestions as far as working around my schedule.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Need help planning an eating schedule due to weird work schedule.

I don't think it's the number of meals per day so much as it is the type of foods that you eat. Some people eat 4, 5 or 6 meals per day and still maintain a healthy weight. For example, you could fill up on a lot of vegetables and beans for lunch and dinner(bean soup or bean salad). Have fruit and oatmeal for breakfast. What you have to watch out for are the dressings and the starches.

Concentrate on eating a healthy diet and you won't have to worry about your weight. Unhealthy processed foods are usually the problem.
