I buy a lot of easily pre-portioned meals, (i.e. Tuna Creations, Individually wrapped guacamole, chicken salad, hummus). I also span my meals out to 4 - 6 meal servings throughout the day. Since you work night shift, do you still get enough "sleep" hours? It is said and documented that adequate sleep help with additional weight loss. I know for myself when I get 8 hours of sleep my body loses more weight than when I get anything less than 8. Also make sure you are getting enough Water / liquid upwards of 100+ oz per day.

Also if you are looking at average weightloss... then you are on target by this chart...

I work nights, 13 hour shifts just about.

I eat my dinner around five pm. I eat a light snack around 10:30 pm or 11:00 pm. I take my meal break if I’m lucky around 3 am and eat left overs of what I have made earlier in the week....chili, Soup, chicken items, etc. I try not to eat when I get home, but if I am hungry I will eat a little snack then too.

My Snacks are usually 130-150 calories and my meals are between 250-300 or so.

It can be hard on nights because you are already fighting your body’s natural rhythm. Stay away from high carb senseless items like cereals and chips and such. I see ppl eating this stuff all night long but they can’t figure out why they gain weight. One lady eats almost a whole box of Cereal every shift plus her meal....
