Sleeping through breakfast?

I know that eating breakfast is very important, and I eat it every day. The problem is that once or twice a week, when I have a day off, I will sleep til 12 or 1 PM! I am somewhat sleep deprived and I use my days off to catch up on sleep.

Now, I'm not asking for advice about my sleep habits. What my problem is that when I eat "breakfast" on my days off is more like lunch time! I eat dinner at the same time as usual, and go to bed at my usual time. So should I still eat three meals and get in my normal amount of calories? I usually just have two meals and end up with about 800-900 calories instead of my usual 1200-1300. Is this really bad for me? What should I do? Again, I'm not really interested in getting up earlier but I want to know what to do with a shortened day.

I'd say - nothing. Just forget that missed meal, and eat as usual that day. I've worked nights and know how it feels For myself though, I remember I was still having all that day's calories for lunch and dinner (so no calorie saving/undereating). Although I was waitressing and always hungry.

Another thought: on the nights when you work, don't you have another meal (big or small, or even a big snack) at some point late in the evening or at night? If yes, then that 'replaces' your missed meal in the morning.

I do the same thing quite often. Usually I just have a small 100 cal breakfast like yogurt and then in a few hours have lunch and then dinner. But my usual calorie allotment for the day is 850.
If your usual is 1200-1300 then I don't see where a day or two of 900 would hurt.
I will add though that I wouldn't go below 850. My Dr has ok'd my calorie amount but stressed not to go below 850 because damage is done if you do and the necessity of taking a daily multi vitamin.
Hope that helps

OP here

Thanks for the advice! 9:49, even when I work late I don't eat past 8pm. The latest I work is 12pm but what's more typical is 11pm. But I know that eating close to bedtime Is bad for you so I have dinner around 7:30, and that's it even if my stomach growls!

With the Super Bowl and Sochi Olympics rapidly approaching, gangsters are seeing dollar signs Wholesale Jerseys 2016 .Sophisticated crime rings are developing pop-up e-marketplaces and sourcing cheap apparel from abroad, readying to profit millions of dollars selling counterfeit goods to unsuspecting deal hunters Stitched NFL Patch.More than $17 million worth of Super Bowl 2013 merchandise -- from fake jerseys, hats and jackets to tickets and other souvenirs -- was seized last year, according to U.S. Immigration and Customers Enforcement.

While the NFL has forced the shutdown of more than 2,500 websites offering counterfeit team merchandise
  • Movie Football
  • , the federal government arrested a dozen people ahead of this year's Super Bowl and the Sochi Organizing Committee pledged to implement a more effective response to the theft of licensed Olympic gear
  • Winnipeg Blue Bombers Jersey
  • , the hill is steep.Without further consumer awareness, defeat is like a large-scale game of whack-a-mole, said David Sugden, an attorney specializing in grey markets at Call & Jensen.“Whenever there’s demand for anything --whether it is sports memorabilia or airplane parts -- you’re going to find there’s an effort from dishonest entrepreneurs to sell dishonest products,” he said.Brands may succeed in shutting down one
  • Atlanta Falcons Jersey
  • , but two more are always waiting in the wings.Traditional crime rings are attracted to the ease of importing apparel over, say, drugs and narcotics, and can quickly develop a website for the sale of illicit merchandise
  • Baltimore ravens Jersey
  • . The sites can also be written in such a way that the actual ring leaders are difficult to prosecute.

    And it's extremely lucrative
  • Indianapolis Colts Jersey
  • . Despite the fact that some of these counterfeited products are indeed far superior to their legitimate counterparts, thieves oftentimes price them in the same ballpark so as to maintain the ruse that the products being purchased are real
  • Buffalo Bills Jersey
  • .“It allows you to maintain the margins of legitimate goods, making it an extremely attractive business with a very low barrier to entry,” said Fred Feldman, chief marketing officer of brand protection firm MarkMonitor
  • Chicago Bears Jersey
  • , which works with the NFL.It’s also easier to fool a shopper online, whereas consumers tend to be more cautious of a random man selling t-shirts out of the back of his truck in the rear of the stadium parking lot.

    “Prior to Internet commerce
  • Cincinnati Bengals Jersey
  • , counterfeiters were often outside of stadiums or in flea markets or just on city streets,” said Sugden. “That kind of environment suggests to a reasonable consumer that this stuff probably is not authentic.”

    Of course, some shoppers looking for
  • Cleveland Browns Jersey
  • a deal are willing to sacrifice the quality. In fact, a MarkMonitor survey from 2012 found that these deal hunters are 20 times more likely to buy counterfeit than regular consumers.

    “Consumers have become more price sensitive and understand that one of the powers of the Internet is to compare and contrast prices to find the best deal NFL ,” Feldman said.

    With millions of revenue on the line, that has become a nightmare for brand owners.
