I am writing to you all in hope that you can help me out. Since I have started working back in June, I have become a complete slacker when it comes to eating better and working out. My clothes are starting not to fit. I am working 40hrs.... 2 8's and 2 12's....basically all days (only two night rotations a month), and it is every other weekend...the weekends have to be 12's. Anyhow, I am so tired by the end of a shift I just can't bring myself to work out. I also am not such a great cook so my roomate and I end up eating out all the time or getting McDonald's or something else like that. It is really bad. I am also taking a class which meets 7-10 Monday, Tuesday, Thursday so those days if I do a D it is close to impossible to work out. You would think that I would work out on my days off but I find myself sooooo overtired that I wind up sleeping away half the day. Any advice?

new--Well, what would you advise a patient with this same history to do? Healthful diet, adequate exercise, stresss management, etc.
Figure that out, then do it yourself!
