Hi Anon

Certain foods can make us tired - like carbs. Also, we can feel really tired after we eat too much. Smaller meals with fresh, unprocessed foods are better. 

Many foods contain what is known as L-tryptophan, in substantial quantities, it is a natural sedative.

Do you think you could have an issue with your blood sugar? This can cause sleepiness - read more here:


I hope this helps!
