Food timing while working 2 jobs

Hi guys,
I'm going to be working temporarily for a few months where i'll be working 4 nights a week alongside my day job. I'll still be training, but I will finish work about 4am, being a fairly active job, I will be upping my calories slightly. My diet will stay the same during the day. My question is, when should I eat those calories back? Should i add them into my daytime calories, eat them once I finished the night shift but before sleep, or add them into the next days diet i.e upon waking at breakfast for example? When would be the most efficient for my body to use it?

6'1, 108kg

Best. Now
Bench 140kg --- 125kg
Deadlift 235kg --- 200kg
Squat 200kg --- 150kg

    You're finishing work at 4am and have a day job? When you eat will probably be nothing compared to your tiredness and energy levels from lack of sleep. Food won't help much there but I wouldn't worry too much just eat when you're hungry if time allows. If you're not hungry after your night job just sleep (for how long?) and have a big breakfast.

    Two jobs including an unsociable night shift and trying to fit in your training not to mention fitting in a few hours kip (when!?) and other stuff like shopping and washing....you're not even gonna have TIME to eat! :confused:
