Does anyone else get tired after eating?

It's mainly just after lunch, but after I eat, I get SOOO sleepy. Does anyone else feel this way, and have you found anything that helps?

  • Try to eat a lunch with more protein and fruits and veggies; lighter on carbs and fats.

    If you are tired other times of the day, you might want to check you blood iron.

    If you have a little one that naps after lunch, you might just need a nap then because it's the only time you can catch up!! :-)
