    Primal Shift Workers

    Primal Fuel
    I just recently started working a 12PM-9PM shift at work and am having trouble adjust food wise. I come home hungry and I am doing my damndest not to eat when I get home as I typically go to bed within an hour of getting home. I take my last meal between 4-5 and I've tried eating breakfast and not waiting to eat until after I workout. There really isn't a difference in hunger levels when I get home. Any thoughts?

    Do you have to eat between 4 and 5? Could you move it closer to 7?

    As for me, I can't sleep when I am hungry so I can see how its messing you up.

    I work 10pm-6am and go to bed around 8am usually. I've been sleeping better since eating a lighter meal immediately when I get home. Usually one or two eggs, 1/2 cup wild blueberries with some raspberries an blackberries thrown in, and some coconut milk stirred with the fruit. Oh, and I eat a big ass salad with steak every night at about 315am. On workout days I immediately go to the gym upon awakening with a downed whey shake, and I like to do a IF on "rest" days. Anyway....hope this helps.

    I work 12hr shifts 7-7 and eat my last meal at about 3am. This works for me but I have had days that I feel hungry before I leave work. I'd put together a small meal like 4 strips of bacon or some hard boiled eggs. Just about anything you like will work. If you are leaving work at 9 or so I'd eat something small before I left at about 8:30 or I'd eat my last meal at about 6-7.

    I also find that eating a real meal 4 or 5 hours before bed allows me to not be hungry at all. You could try this:

    1. Eat small about before leaving work
    2. Eat larger more satisfying meal at your normal 4-5 pm (I make my last meal pretty big, with lots of fat and I eat slow)
    3. Drink large glass of water before leaving work or when you get home.

    Keep working at it and you will find a time and amount that works for you.

    Good luck

    I work in a call center so it isn't physical labor. Our lunches and breaks are scheduled so I have no choice in time. My problem is that I am not hungry at 4 yet I workout between 10-11 and eat something after I shower around noon(we have a gym at work). I haven't felt the urge to eat everything in sight with winter coming. I'm not starving when I get home, I just feel the urge to eat a little something. I'm in bed between 10:30-11 as I have to be up early in the morning to take care of stuff at home.

    Snacking leads to very bad things for me. I have chosen not to snack as it leads to a binge feat.

    Maybe have one of Batty's Blueberry Butter Balls with B-Coconut when you get home. A nice light snack.

    I tried bone marrow for the first time. I like it very much but I can only eat about three of them. Fatty in the extreme! That much concentrated fat seems to signal my brain that I am full and do not need to eat. I was surprised how fast that happened. So buy three marrow bones, roast them and give it a shot. You may find a snack that holds off all hunger for hours.

    I work 6p-6a three to four nights a week. I eat a meal before going to work, a breakfast type meal or meat and veggies. I eat again around 11 or 12. I always bring my lunch, usually good Primal leftovers. I eat a snack around 4, something like berries and nuts. I don't eat when I get home because my belly doesn't feel great when I wake up. This has worked for me. I've lost 32 pounds since May 1st. My biggest problem is finding the best time to exercise.
