    If you can eat food cold like pasta thats always good for snacking on.....I do nights as well I take lots of Fruit, Sea Food Sticks, Mug Shots....this way if i get peckish i just eat the good stuff rather than syns. Snack a Jacks are good for quick snacks the crisp versions are around 4 syns a pack.

    I always use my heb to take on a night shift. An example of my 'day' is a normal dinner at 6pm. I usually take my break around 2pm where I eat my heb weight watchers pitta stuffed with lean meat and salad, a hifi light bar (3 syns) hoops and crosses crisps (4-4.5 syns) a danio yogurt (1.5 syns) I'm usually stuffed after this. I then eat a fruit salad with a muller yogurt when I get home before going to bed or if I've finished my set of nights I have a SW fry up before crashing in the sofa to watch a movie. I always find I lose better on nights as I'm much more organised. X

    I work nights in a hotel, I usually take lots of snacky bits, things I can just grab and eat as I'm passing. Things like SW quiche, fresh fruit cut up, weetabix muffins, Hi-fi bars, boiled eggs, SW cheese pie, pickled vegs, carrot sticks, curry loaf etc. I also take soup in a flask so it's ready any time. I have my tea before I go to work and some breakfast before I go to bed. I think you have to be really organised and take food that suits you and your work pattern x
