I'm also a night shift nurse who is guilty of eating while charting (in our conference room where food is allowed). The good thing is that I can't mindlessly eat the way I would at home while watching TV or something, since I only have the food I bring with me for that shift. But night shift in general I feel makes me hungrier and more prone to junk food cravings. Frustrating!

I work nightshift and we only have 2 nurses on the floor for 12 beds, sometimes it's just 1 nurse when only 5 beds are open. I don't get an actual lunch cause we admit patients all night long and ER pushes people out as fast as they can. I always eat and chart.

I work from home doing Claims processing. I've started setting a timer on my phone for breaks and lunch and don't eat at the computer. It gives me something to look forward to and stepping away a few moments really does help me be productive.

Sip on water. You can always declare the computer a "no food zone." This means you schedule meals and snacks. It is hard but it might be a great opportunity to change a habit that has been challenging.

Some people find that when they change the rules and can only eat at a table with dishes that their eating changes and they are more successful.
