    Whats the best way to play this guys ?

    My dilema guys is that I work a 12 hr days and nights pattern.....tomoro I start a 4 nightshift cycle and start at 1900 and finish at 0700....

    My diet is something along these lines Sample Menu #1


    Meal # 1 (Breakfast)
    Protein Shake
    1 serving of plain oatmeal
    Optional Supplement: 1 teaspoon of Flax seed oil

    Meal # 2 (Snack)
    3 Hard Boiled Eggs
    1 serving of Broccoli

    Meal # 3 (Lunch)
    31/2 ounces Chicken Breast
    1 cup of mixed vegetables
    1 Large Apple

    Meal # 4 (My post workout meal)
    1 Banana
    11/2 servings of whey protein powder
    (sipping on my whey protein during my workout and finishing it after my workout)

    Meal #5 (Dinner)
    31/2 ounces of Salmon
    cup spinach
    1 serving of berries such as strawberries

    Meal #6 Optional (Before I go to bed)
    Protein Shake


    Now my problem is that I will wake tomoro morning at 0800 and follow the above diet through to say 2000 ..but obviously I will still be awake from 2000 untill o700 the next day...What would you do re eating in that time window between 2000 and 0700.

    I will sleep in the day approx 6 hours (not enough I know but thats the shifts i work)

    How would you guys play the eating issue given this problem with shift pattern

    Keep eating every 3 to 4 hours (or when you get hungry) while awake.

    The main reason you don't eat while your asleep is b/c you're asleep. Deep thoughts...
