I currently work 10pm-6am, I workout after work from 630-730. I usually drink a protein shake and go to bed, but I am wondering if I should be trying to eat something as well?

Here's my typical day:

5:00PM - Wake Up
5:30PM - Breakfast - 4-6 Eggs and Veggies
9:00PM - Snack or Small Meal (protein)
10:00PM - Go to Work
11:00PM - Snack or Small Meal
2:00AM - Dinner - Eat Dinner at Work - Usually Chicken Breast or Pasta with Beef
5:30AM - Preworkout - Can of Tuna + Egg Whites or Peanut Butter on WW Bread
6:00AM - Leave Work
6:30AM - Workout for 1hr
7:45AM - Home - Drink Protein Shake
9:00AM - Sleep until 5pm

I guess it depends on if you eat during your shift. Id treat my post workout meal the same regardless. I workout in the afternoon take a protein drink and then take an hour nap. Sleep triggers that growth hormone :)
