My SO works nights (11pm-7am) and adapting was hard. She hit a plateau and even experienced a little gain. I'm not on the same schedule, so it's hard to synchronize meals and such.
The linked article (earlier post) is good stuff. A couple things that have helped around here: (a) going to bed after coming home for work; (b) getting 6-8 hours of sleep; (c) keeping it *dark* for that sleep time; and (d) what's hard in the winter -- still getting some daylight afterward!
The coworker is right in a sense and it's never ideal. But you have to develop a routine and stick to it.
