If I don't eat in the morning before bed I will wake up around noon, too! I try to eat something hearty and not just cereal... so oatmeal, eggs and toast, etc. I also gained a few lbs when starting night shift but I think that's because I found it much harder to keep a consistent workout routine because I was always "recovering." I'm still on nights but things are a little different because I'm 6 months pregnant now!

It sounds like you're doing well, but what's killing you is probably the odd sleep schedule. The better you can stick to either the night schedule or day schedule sleep-wise, the better off you'll be. It's the going back and forth (and I'm guilty of this too because of family things or stuff friends with normal jobs want to do on my days/nights off) that kills you physically.

If you have kids or a s/o who is on a normal schedule, then that might be hard, but once I figured that out after reading some studies on it, the weight started coming off easier again.

As for eating I do the same thing, something light, but every now and then a small amount of spicy curry or something like that sounds good too! :inlove:
