Whenever a heavy meal is consumed all the blood supply is directed towards the Gut. This can make us tired and sleepy . Eating a meal proportionate in portion size and in content such a healthy meals that are not too high in fat content or consist of simple sugars can help you avoid this heavy feeling
Slow digestion needs a GI eval
Blood goes to stomach and away from other organs such as Brain and Adrenals,causes fatigue,especially Red Meat and Turkey (Tryptophan )
Try reducing the carbohydrate content in your meal and making it more healthier with protein content.
