    Question Getting super-tired after certain food?

    Hi!

    I am 'of course' getting tired after eating.
    But i am getting tired like cracy after eating: Spaghetti (with olive oil and meat)
    Yesterday i went to bed 4 hours earlier than usual and fell asleep after i ate spaghetti.

    (also: another food that makes me especially tiresome is chicken [pre-marinated, from the supermarket]).

    Any ideas, comments..? - Appreciated!

    After a week gluten free I had a pack of 2 minute noodles. Felt very sleepy with 1/2 hr of having them, for lunch.
    I don't know if it was the gluten or other part of the wheat or what but won't be repeating it anytime soon

    In Our society this has established to be the regular thing, however if you eat healthy this effect tends to fade
    away (almost) entirely. So take this as a sign that you might want to change your eating patterns (as you do already).
    Spaghetti is one of those foods which are bad in many ways, so even if you didnt have symoptoms I would have advocated
    to skip spaghetti almost entirly. If you do get symptoms with spaghetti just avoid them 100%

    Chicken is a different story though, quality might be just bad or something.

    As a general rool of thumb just avoid any foods that make you especially tired, chances are pretty high that those
    foods arent any good for you.

    It's normal if you feel a little fatigued after eating a large amount of pasta. There was a spike in your blood sugar which will cause your pancreas to release a flood of insulin to convert glucose into energy or to be stored for future use. This may cause you to become tired. If you have severe fatigue, it could be hypoglycemia.

    Gluten causes sleepiness, more gluten causes more sleepiness. That's why everybody falls asleep after lunch at work or after eating a Thanksgiving feast.

    Check the label on the chicken. Anything pre-seasoned from the grocery store (in the U.S.) is most likely seasoned with a chemical cocktail.

    You are eating sugar (pasta) and getting tired. This is to be expected...

    I get a carb crash from any grain food - pastas, breads, cereals. Also a major crash from beans. Never feel tired after a healthy primal meal. Relaxed, yes, sleepy, no.
