I suggest googling "after workout snacks" or search it on the spark site. I also read an article once about the best things to eat before bedtime...those that will interrupt your sleep the least. I can't remember any of the specific information right now, but I'm sure there's an article somewhere on spark that will help you. If I come across it, I will post it here.

Wow! You're a busy lady! The only thing I can offer is maybe to break up your breakfast into two parts. Half before work then the other half as a snack later in the morning.

As for eating before bed, maybe something light in the protein area such as; peanut butter with an apple or 1 oz of cheese and a few crackers.

Sorry that I'm not more of a help! ~Ann

Hello all -

I am a health care administrator that works 3 12 hour days from 9am to 9pm. I struggle with not eating 2-3 hours before I go to bed.

If I eat breakfast at 8 before I go to work, I need lunch by 1pm and dinner by 5 or 6pm. One issue is that I only get one 30 minute food break. So far I've been eating my breakfast and lunch at my desk (about 10am and 1pm then take my break at 5pm for dinner.)

I struggle because I am most comfortable going to the gym after work - not before. I've been doing this for about 2 months now but I'm hungry again afterwards!!! So frustrating. I shouldn't eat because I go to sleep soon after I get home but I'm to hungry to rest.

Any suggestions - thoughts - ideas? I'm having a hard time getting into a routine. Even if it's two different routines - one for work and one for home. Since I am in nursing school I really need to get a pattern going now!
