Greetings All,.

I'm a newbie (my food will be arriving tomorrow ) and I have a question regarding working the night shift. I apologize if this question has been answered, I did search for any posts, but couldn't find any. I work 3rd shift 10p-8am Thursday thru Sunday and then I'm off Mon thru Wed. My problem is I'm trying to figure out how to eat normally for 3 days and then Thursday morning I have to sleep during the day for my first night back to work at 10pm. Should I graze on fruits/veggies Thursday in the daytime til I go back to sleep around noon and then eat then eat the nutrisystem meals at work since it's my morning??? I know, it's a brain teaser Thank you in advance for any help/assistance you can provide.

You will have to just find an eating schedule that works for you. I work night shift from 6PM to 4:30 AM four to five days a week. This is how I do my schedule:.

First work day:.

I eat lunch before I go in to work..

I eat my snack at my first break..

I eat my dinner at my meal break (lunch/dinner).

I eat my dessert at my last break..

I eat breakfast when I get home ( I am usually up for 2-3 hours when I get home so I don't eat and then go right to bed..

Then on my days off I will eat breakfast for my first meal of the day ( so I am eating breakfast 2 times in a row on those days several hours apart) then I eat normal the rest of the day. Lunch at lunch, snack half way between lunch and dinner, dinner at dinner time and dessert a few hours before bed.

Just be sure that you are eating every 3 hours or so, that is the biggest key..

Hope this was helpful. I have been working this shift since I started Nutrisystem and have had no problems...

My husband has the same kind of work schedule. He usually just eats everything normally, but when it comes to Friday, he goes to bed at 8AM and wakes up at noon or one, and back to bed around 10, so thats only 9 hours or so he's awake. He hasn't figured out a great plan for Fridays yet, but maybe this will help, thanks!..
