So sleepy after i eat...why is this happening?

For the last few weeks i've noticed that after i eat i get really really sleepy. I know it happens to people sometimes but i've never experienced it in my life.

Is there a health condition that could cause something like this?

  • Not sure. I know that if I eat a lot or have a meal heavy on the carbs and sugars, that will happen to me. Have you changed your diet in the last few weeks in some way?

  • I haven't changed my eating habits at all but i'm going to keep an eye on that. I am pretty good about not over eating, especially if it's a heavy meal.

    I am afraid it's just cause i am getting old and my metabolism is slowing down.

  • Na nothing to worry. Our body becomes a lil lazy after eating. It's natural. That's all...
