Any 12-hour night shift workers?
I'm very new here so I'll give a quick introduction to what what I'm doing and what I need help with from all you weight loss champions :D!
I'm within a healthy BMI category. I was a vegan for two years and had a body that I loved... and a few months ago I started incorporating dairy into my diet and my weight went shooting up. The weight on my body is distributed very unevenly meaning I have a large belly and teeny boney arms :sigh: ... I look pregnant! Even worse I'm going on holiday in 10 weeks :O Will die if someone asks me when I'm due (again) when I'm on the beach... I have no intention of going back to my vegan diet as I'm a student and veg is so expensive!
Therefore, I've now started a calorie-controlled diet :D I aim for 1,000-1,200 calories per day (I'm a teeny 5'1), and right now I'm finding it breeze.
Although I have a major, problem... NIGHTSHIFT!!
I do 12 hour night shifts over the weekend. This is a huge problem because I'm left thinking.. what do I take with me as my food for 12 hours? and how do I change my eating pattern to suit that? Usually I would take with me pasta, or crisps, or sandwiches... but now these are all scored out as they're too fatty, too many carbs, etc, etc. It's not like I can make my vegetable bake, or egg white omelette in the middle of work, salad won't fill me up whatsoever :( ... even then in the morning I'm so tired and lazy to make something healthy to eat, I grab a pastry from the bakery or something...
So here's my major plea... for those in my shoes, (preferably those who also have little money too)... what meat-free food can I eat on night shift :cry:?
