My days are backwards. How do I get back to normal?

My work schedule has me so messed up on my days right now. Through the week and half the weekend, I work 2nd/3rd shift (8 pm to between 1 and 2 am) and the other weekend day has been a swing shift of about noon to 6 pm. Last Friday night I got off at 1:15 am and had to be back in at 8 am for a meeting. My appetite is completely backwards. I'm nowhere near hungry enough to eat during the day. Food doesn't even sound appealing until later afternoon. Then after I get off work, I'm ravenous. Until I can figure out how to get back to a somewhat normal appetite and UD/DD schedule, I've just been sticking to HFLC.

Any ideas on how to get back to somewhat normal? I though about trying MUDDD, but as hungry as I am when I get off work, UD dinners for me are NOT a good idea. Sleeping on a full stomach doesn't help weight matters for me.
As of 5/19/2014, No longer "overweight"!

Oh boy, that is a problem. Schedules like that can really wreak havoc with weight, not to mention ability to get enough sleep, mood, and just general health. I don't have any good suggestions, sorry! Just wanted to lend my support and hope you find some good alternatives that will work for you!

All I can come up with is to use your wake-to-sleep hours as your "day" and just do the rotations based on that. It's hard with a varying schedule.

JUDDD got me where I want to be!
