    Hi Joe, as a shift worker I know that sleep is going to be key. In terms of nutrition as well would you recommend low carb on days after a poor sleep as we cant utilise carbs as well? Maybe if you could do a typical Joe response on the Q&A for best tips to optimise growth and fat loss around shift work. Thanks!

    I will answer this longer in video – but short answer – I wouldn’t lower food. Yes, your short term insulin sensitivity might not be great, but dropping calorie will likely add insult to injury and lower gym performance. Most likely – you just need to put more time and effort into sleep grooming, and doing everything you can to prioritize getting quality sleep
