I worked a similar shift for a while years ago, and I would actually suggest something very different. First off, I found sleeping 8 hours during the day to be very difficult. Light and noises find their way into your room and will disturb you. When you get home from working all night the first thing you will want to do is crash, so if you do sleep 8 hours then, you'll be getting up around 3:30, and then come 3am you'll be very tired. What I would suggest, which worked well for me, is actually break up your sleep to 3-4 hours right after you get home, and 3-4 hours shortly before you go to work. So if you get home at 7:30, go right to sleep until about 10:30-11am. Wake up around 11, get showered and dressed, then you have about 6 hours in the middle of the day to do whatever. Around 6pm go back to sleep, wake up around 9:30-10, throw clothes back on, and go to work. Try to eat 2 meals toward the middle of your waking periods, so around 2pm and 2am, and then just light snacks if you need them in between cause you don't want to eat a whole bunch right before going to sleep. Doing it that way worked great for me because I got enough sleep, I had plenty of free time during the day, and on the weekends I could be conscious during the day without throwing off my whole week.
