    pre made meal plans and working night shift conflict?




    if i am trying to follow a pre made example diet for lean bulking but am deployed and work night shift can i completely switch around the meals to fit my schedule? like for my first meal of the day it is everyone elses dinner so its all dinner food and my last meal of the day in breakfast food, would it be fine if i ate what the example diet says for dinner as my first meal and what it says as an example breakfast as my last meal or do i need to completely reconstruct a diet?

    Welcome to IM.

    Feel free to arrange the meals in any fashion.

    We'd also be happy to take a look at your diet if you're interested in a second opinion.

    I can relate to this. I work nights quite often. It is easier to relax and just eat every few hours .

    meals for bodybuilding don't necessarily have to fit the "normal" meal arrangement.....think about it....after a night out what do most people want to eat?....breakfast foods......i.e. Denny's grand slam.......the most important meals imo are preworkout and postworkout.....making sure you get enough carbs in those two meals and the other meals are all interchangeable

    Try to keep the simple carbs(if any) to earlier in your "day" so you are not eating them before you sleep. Other than that, chicken for breakfast, eggs for dinner, whatever. No rules.

    It really don't matter as long as your diet is solid, although there are s-o-m-e people who wouldn't recommend certain things like carbs before bed, but I don't care. I'm a night person too. Welcome to IM!

    thanks for all the replys guys...now i just have to find a way to work out a good meal plan for the dfac based on the one i have. I am a little dissapointed that the army changed from showing the carbs and calories above all the items to the stupid "stop light" system where its green if you should eat it and red if you shouldnt

    But they offer it anyway?

    Green: eat me
    Red: I'm here, but ignore?
    Wondering where to start? Confused? "Homework 1" will get you started.

    Think you're ready for the "next step"? Take this test.

    That makes a lot of sence. I'd probably just eat all the red stuff.
