Although I'm not a 12 hr. shift worker, per se, I routinely have 12 hr work days involving switching from my day job to my part-time private practice in the evening. I always keep plenty of freggies on hand: apples, baby carrots, broccoli florets, baby spinach, red bell pepper strips, natural almonds. They go a long way toward satisfying my gnoshing needs and the almonds have great satiating staying power. Extras I'll often have include yogurt and cheese. For carbs you can also consider either Flatout wraps or DeliThins at around 100 calories apiece and load 'em up with veggies and some cheese.
Most important for me is never drinking anything with calories! Boatloads of water, some black coffee in the mornings and brewed green tea in the afternoon. I prefer to CHEW my calories! :-)
