Food Coma?

This happens to me too.  Some evenings after dinner I just sleep in my chair until bedtime.  Usually I wake up with the chills or restless legs and head to bed.  I couldn't figure it out either.  I know it's harder for me to eat after noon so I was thinking that digestion must be taking my energy up.  Not sure, but the baby analogy makes sense to me.

I'm two years post-op....carbs do it to me every time.  Bread, pasta, rice, etc. 

But, nothing compares with sugar.  Sugar is like a sleeping pill for me.

I'm not sure if this would make a difference or not, but I was told to eat protein first.  Maybe instead of eating the rice or vegetable first you could eat the protein first.  It won't hurt to try!

All the time.

It is a blood sugar reaction.  Shoots up, then waaaaaay down.

But my blood sugar is 100 yet I'm out cold.

Very limiting.

Have figured out what to eat or not eat.

I think amount of food matters too.

Ugh. This is me and I don't know what to do.

Immediate sleeping pill.
