    Hi I do mostly night shifts & am never really sure what to do about diet on my first night of the week. On my first night (today for instance ) I am up with my baby in the morning then stay up until I get home tomorrow morning around 9am. (very tired!!! lol:D )
    I get hungry around midnight and again at about 4am.
    should I just have another 2 shakes at those times?

    I guess you can take your shakes whenever its most suitable for you so you cud rearrange ur meal times around ur lifestyle. just as long as you still to the guidelines on having 2 shakes and snacks and then one 600 meal. i often have a few more snacks if i'm extra hungry, just to stop me picking at bad stuff :)

    hmm nope that's not enough for 25 hours up & being at work on a busy ward & is what i am questioning. I can't be up and alert on just the stuff for the day, but then i am asleep all the next day so if i have the next days shakes & meal then i guess it will even out huh LOL thanks :D

    Hi Flubber - I dont work shifts anymore, and when I did I didnt do slimfast...but if it were me I would defo have two shakes and snakes through the night - I think I would pretty much treat my night as a new day, if you know what I mean. You can not go 25 hours on so little intake, especially if your busy, sounds like your a nurse?
