But the problem is how to change eating habits. In my
situation, it's a little bit different, because I don't live a 9-5
lifestyle, I live a 2-9 PM lifestyle, which leaves me at the gym around 11
PM at night. And that's where I think a lot of the problem is. It's hard to
adjust my eating habits accordingly, and I end up eating before bed, or,
waking up in the middle of the night, and eating carbs. I want to go to an
eating disorders group, but I'm not able to, because ... working 2-9 just
does not facilitate being able to go to group meetings and those sorts of
These are all excuses. Bad ones, at that. Have you considered going to
bed after work (say, around 11 pm) and getting up at 7 am and doing all
sorts of things BEFORE work? That's what I did when I did shift work.
In fact, I work both shifts now and I *still* manage to get my workouts
in and eat healthy. And raise three children.
We've all got 24 hours. It's up to you to choose what to do with them.
