Eating for Shift Work

Taming The SRU - July 25, 2016 - By Brittney Bernardoni, MD
"Tips for Eating during Shift Work:
  1. Eat your main meal before work
  2. Bring healthy snacks and a small balanced meal to work
  3. Avoid eating between 0000-0600 especially carb-rich meals (decreased attention, increased risk metabolic synd, possibly insulin-related)
  4. Drink plenty of water, have a water bottle by your workstation
  5. <400mg of caffeine/day (4 c coffee, 4 monsters, 4 mountain dew)
  6. No caffeine in the 4 hours before bedtime
  7. Avoid large meals 1-2 hours before bedtime
  8. Avoid alcohol after work (may disturb sleep)
Remember, these tips are guidelines. We will frequently do the exact opposite of these recommendations, especially during post-overnight breakfasts (aka 7 and 8). Wellness is all about balance. This month, try incorporating 1-2 of these recommendations into your daily shift routine and see what works for you!"
