    Hi Guys,

    I need some advice from anyone working nights(graveyard shift). I am struggling when it comes time to shred. Previously i used a diet plan with similar work out plan and lost weight quite easily. I ate 6 times per day so started at 5 am and last meal being around 8 pm. On training days my last 3 meals would be carbs. On non training days just last meal with carbs. So now i eat my first meal at 3pm and my last meal at 3 am. My energy levels and training are ok but just cant loose weight. I am maintaining which is ok as im not putting on weight but i have been same weight for 6 weeks. If anyone has had similar problem or can help me i would be much appreciated.

    I have been working continuous shift for 12 years and for meals I just shift the time slot. Breakfast is at 1630, snack at 2000, meal at 2130, snack at 0100, meal at 0230, snack at 0500 and final meal at bedtime at 0700. Maybe cut back the amount you are eating? If you are holding weight you are in balance. Maybe shave a few macros off each meal and see how that goes?

    I find my first meal is good but my second main meal can give a little bloat. This one is generally around 0230 in the morning and after that feel like a snooze. Not so good when you have until 0630 to go. ;(
