Food Coma?

Does anyone else have this problem? Any time I eat anything I end up so tired I feel like I'm going to pass out. I'm about five months out if that matters.

Had some chicken + rice for lunch and am about to snooze on my desk.  Did NOT eat a large amount, am completely full, just really really really tired.

 hmmm... I get that way every now and then, especially if I eat dense protein.

I wonder if it's the carbs (rice)?  I was told not to eat rice.

Do you know if you have sleep apnea?  I've been treated for it for a couple of years and what you describe is pretty much how I felt all the time!

Are you getting sick?

 Ha, we must have been posting at about the same time...see 'Eating Issues' below. I'm early out and having that problem, lol.  No help from me as I'm wondering the same thing!

No answers but I think it's interesting that yours and the post below yours are about the exact same thing.

I don't know if I had sleep apnea before treatment, but I know I don't snore now. I seem to sleep better.

My PCP said rice + carbs = okay, when I was following the surgeons diet I was getting really ill, and my liver was shutting down, I was having a lot of vomiting issues.  I eat them in small amounts (I had probably 2-3 oz of chicken and maybe 1/4 a cup of rice for lunch) and usually try to eat vegetables first.

I'm just sleeeepy. :-)

I have only had this happen once and it was a month ago.  We were out to dinner, I had some carrot cake (it was my birthday okay!) and I ate about 6 bites.  Then...the yawns...then dozing at the table..then...hubby had to take me home so I could go to sleep.

Even an "approved" food can cause your body to respond a certain way...our bodies don't really know what is and isn't "approved" by our surgeon/NUT/dietitian. :) So, that said, my best guess is that it is the rice...some people are extremely sensitive to carbs and will suffer from food coma from even a small amount.

I had the same response after eating 4 Ziti noodles........and again after sugar free cake.  I'm thinking that its my version of dumping.
