All your energy goes to your stomach to digest such a large meal, to the detriment of everything else.

Try eating smaller amounts more often. Have a mid-morning snack - fruit and cottage cheese for example, a light lunch such as a chicken salad and an afternoon snack such as cheese and biscuits and you will not feel so sleepy.

i think its cause it takes alot of energy to digest your food so it causes you to get sleepy. im tired too and i just ate

most ppl get sleepy. i ready for a nap, too
