I work 3rd shift from11:30pm -7:30am I don’t eat breakfast except on the weekends does it mater if I eat something before I go to bed in the mornings or am I fighting a loosing battle .Also I’m trying to get 64oz. of water in a day should I keep track of it from the time I get up or in a 24hour time span?

The primary consideration for weight management is overall calorie intake for the day in relation to your physical activity. Since most of your activity takes place during the hours you are awake, it is best to consume more of your calories during that time since that is when you need the energy and nutrients. A light snack before bedtime, however, is not harmful. As far as keeping track of your water intake as well as your calorie intake, you would consider a 24 hour time span.
