Timing of food intake during simulated night shift impacts glucose metabolism: A controlled study
TLDR
Results in this small, healthy sample suggest that not eating at night may limit the metabolic consequences of simulated night work, and whether matching food intake to the biological clock could reduce the burden of type 2 diabetes in shift workers. Expand
The factors influencing the eating behaviour of shiftworkers: what, when, where and why
TLDR
It is highlighted that future research into shiftworker eating needs to adopt an integrative approach and consider the different individual and social contexts that influence eating patterns. Expand
Framework and Metrics for Online Fatigue Monitoring Within Submarine Teams Working in 24/7 Environments
TLDR
A state of the science is proposed on the concept of fatigue as well as physiological and behaviour metrics supporting the emergence of a fatigue management system for individuals and teams and a framework for online fatigue monitoring in maritime environments is proposed. Expand
Salivary levels of alpha-amylase are associated with neurobehavioral alertness during extended wakefulness, but not simulated night-shift work
TLDR
Findings indicate that the usability of sAA to assess the risk of neurobehavioral deficits during shift-work operations is limited, but the robust circadian rhythm exhibited by sAA during the protocol of circadian misalignment suggests that sAA could serve as a potential circadian marker. Expand
The impact of meal timing on performance, sleepiness, gastric upset, and hunger during simulated night shift
TLDR
Eating at night was associated with elevated bloating on night one, which decreased across the protocol, and restricting food intake may limit performance impairments at night. Expand
It’s not just what you eat but when: The impact of eating a meal during simulated shift work on driving performance
TLDR
Results suggest that, for optimal performance, shiftworkers should consider restricting food intake during the night. Expand
Effects of Diet on Sleep: A Narrative Review
TLDR
Findings on sleep-promoting foods and the effects of diet on sleep in otherwise healthy adults are clarified and the authors posit that high carbohydrate diets, and foods containing tryptophan, melatonin, and phytonutrients, were linked to improved sleep outcomes. Expand
Subjective Hunger, Gastric Upset, and Sleepiness in Response to Altered Meal Timing during Simulated Shiftwork
TLDR
A snack during the nightshift could alleviate hunger during the Nightshift without causing fullness or increased sleepiness, and there was no difference in desire to eat between meal and snack groups. Expand
Timing of Australian flight attendant food and beverage while crewing: a preliminary investigation
TLDR
Working time disrupts sleep and temporal eating patterns in flight attendants and further research into nutritional and dietary-related countermeasures may be beneficial to improving worker health and reducing circadian disruption. Expand
Altering meal timing to improve cognitive performance during simulated nightshifts
TLDR
Altering meal timing could improve cognition, alertness, and thus safety during the nightshift, and shiftworkers should opt for a snack at night. Expand
