This question already has an answer here:
I can sometimes feel quite drowsy after some "meals" (e.g. a cold cut & cheese sandwich with juice on the side) and less drowsy (or maybe less often) after others (such as a salad).
This drowsiness sometimes affects my work at the office, so I wanted to ask these questions:
- What biological factors lead to the body getting tired after eating?
- Are there any strategies that can be used to minimize this effect?
