    The dreaded midnight shift

    Well i got moved to the midnight shift. when i was on days, i had no problem eating through out the day, and i was getting good results(cutting down).
    ever since i got moved to midnight's, i cant get an eating schedule down.
    i work from 23:00-07:30. then sleep from 08:00-13:30.
    I am actually hungry literally once time a day. any one have any advice to getting back on track? its killing me
    Thank you

    Depending on what type of work ye do, can ye eat during yer shift? Even if just a couple of protein bars or a pre-made shake, better than not eating for the lot of yer 'day'.

    As per yer appetite, I'm guessing ye'll adapt over time - how long ye had the graveyard shift?

    i sit mostly at a desk now. i have been on this shift for about 4 months now. its just weird because before i was able, and hungry, to eat all throughout the day. now since im only hungry 1 time a day i feel like my body is in starvation mode and holding onto everything it can.

    honestly when I cant eat I just beat off , immediate appetite. and no Im not trolling, it really does work. So next time at work, take a bathroom break and rub one out quickly and then try eating after.

    I prepped all my meals when I was on Mids for several years. You just shovel it in, you gotta eat

    It's a tough adjustment I'm sure. I see that you're only getting 5 1/2 hours sleep. That's probably contributing to your lack of appetite as well. If you can, try to get in a couple more hours and that might help spark your willingness to eat more

    I had to do the midnight shift for 2 months and it took me 2 weeks for body to adjust to eating/sleeping schedule. For now just shove the food down and you'll adjust as time goes by
