Bigjenlock4 Posted March 20, 2014 Share Posted March 20, 2014 Some advice please. I work 7 p.m. to 7:30 a.m. , three nights a week...a typical schedule for a R.N. I am trying to figure what would be best....trying not to eat while I am at work throughout the night and keep a normal person day eating schedule (though that would mean skipping lunch). Or, just eat while at work at my "lunch" as though it were my regular lunch. I have been doing the latter... But when I am off work, I eat during the day like a normal person. Should I stick to a "day" eating schedule? Problem here is that I don't want to come home from work and eat in the morning before I go to bed. Ideally I could take a "breakfast" to work and eat around 5 a.m. However, I work in the Intensive Care Unit...and there is no telling how crazy my night will be...and mornings tend to be busy anyway (even on a night when when my patients are stable) as the end of my shift gets closer. Chances are I might actually get to eat that late maybe once a week. Right now I usually eat my "breakfast" around 6 p.m., and eat lunch between 2-3 a.m. I might get in a handful of nuts or some raw veggies/jerky or hardboiled egg later... But rarely. Any advice? Other than switching to the day shift? I know that working nights messes with our bodies enough, just don't want to sabotage it any more! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
