dh thinks eating makes him tired...

waaaay beyond take a short nap and get over it. and it is healthy things making him feel like this. he esp thinks this about onions and potatoes. he can go all day w/o eating and be a-ok, and when he eats one meal, he is ready for bed and God help whoever wakes him up. is this a valid concern?

  • Have him get checked out by a doctor. I don't know if food is causing it, but he can't go without eating obviously, but maybe there is something in his diet that is affecting him, or maybe it's something else.

  • potatos probably do make him sleepy...they cause your brain to create seratonin which can make a person sleepy as well as calm...that's why some people crave carbs when they are stressed.

  • The fact that he is not eating all day probably has a lot to do with it. Either that, or he has you convinced it's the food & when it's really him being a lazy butt.
