I truly know what you mean about a whacked out food schedule. I work 2 days, 2 nights and four off, one set pattern never works for me. I find what helps me is that I set an eating schedule for the days I'm off, for my days and for my nights, that way I'm not trying to eat at the same time every day. The whole deal about not eating past seven is based on the theory you shouldn't eat right before going to bed. In my case when I work nights I go to bed at 4 am so I have my supper around 2100 and stop eating around 2400. My night suppers are usually just a bunch of little things. A piece of chicken, few carrot sticks, piece or two of cheese, things like that. Easy to eat on the go and not too hard on the stomach. Hope it helps, it's just what works for me.

My hours at work have recently changed. I now work on swing shifts ( on 3 days, off 2..on 2, off 3) anyway, on the days I do work? I work 8a-8p.
I DO eat breakfast at home, and I also eat small meals/snacks while AT work on breaks (of which I get 3 {10:45, 1:45, 4:40}) I HAVE to eat at every one because I have crohns disease, otherwise, the pain(stomach cramps) and diarrhea is more than I can stand.. and well... I know that if I DON'T eat.. my metabolism will hit the floor :)
The thing is, is I have always heard you are not "supposed" to eat dinner past ...what? 7.
How do I eat dinner if I don't get home until close to 8:30 at night?
I will say that as of now? What I do eat for dinner is usually a small meal, because of how many times I eat throughout the day. People with crohns are supposed to eat what is referred to a "fist sized" meals, to keep your digestion... stresses at a minimum. And, this works well for me. (better than what I thought it would)
Any help/suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks
