Subject: Re: Fatigue/Sleepiness after Eating

>Like most people, I feel rather fatigued and tired after eating to the point that I can't do anything really substantial for a few hours. This occurs no matter how heavy or light a meal I consume (my blood sugar levels appear to be normal). Can anyone out there suggest some sort of remedy to these symptoms or the problem itself? Why is this happening?

another reason may be food allergies. i am currently finding out my allergies, and have found that certain foods, such as dairy (it's a lactose intolerance, actually) cause me to get very sleepy, my eyes get heavy and i just want to curl up and go to sleep. other foods do that too. but anyway, it could be a contributing factor.
