If you eat dinner at a regular time, say 7pm -- every night, your body will burn those calories as you bop around your floor/unit. Bring in healthy snacks, fruit or crunchy veggies to munch during those hours, for me its 2-4am, when the body is ready to drag. It gives a boost of calorie and the just act of chewing perks up your brain.

WATER -- not coffee or anything-- drinking water regularly during the night keeps the metabolism going --

Hope all is well...

I'm not a nurse but I do work the 11X7 shift 5 nights a week. I've been doing it for years and have put on a considerable amount of weight since I started. I just can't seem to figure out at what times I should be eating meals/snacks. I'm divorced so some days I'm eating diner with the kids shortly after getting up, and If I'm hungry when I come home I have trouble sleeping. Any help in figuring out when to eat would be appreciated, thanks.
