*Eat a light meal before going to sleep during the day
in order to avoid waking up due to hunger
*Attempt to stick to a normal day and night pattern of food intake
i.e. breakfast, lunch and dinner at the appropriate times
*Have three significant meals throughout a 24 hour period where each meal makes up
20-35% of your daily intake of food
*Avoid relying on convenience foods that have
high carbohydrate content during your shift
*Avoid sugar-rich foods like bakery items,
soft drinks and sweets
*During your shift, rely on foods like vegetable soups, salads, yoghurt,
whole grain sandwiches, nuts, and other more balanced snacks.
*Design your shift schedule to allow enough time between shifts for sleep,
meal preparation, and other activities, and avoid quick returns to work.
*Instead of "fish n chips" choose the filled roll option.
*Make extra dinner and pack the left overs for lunch
