Almost everyone experience sleepy mood after eating, especially when they just have had a huge lunch or supper. However, few people know the reason. Your lunch or supper are full of carbohydrates, which leaves you feel so sleepy. It also might lead to headaches, irritability or light-headedness, since your blood glucose is raised  and insulin production spike too much. Your blood glucose levels drop dramatically, resulting in a sugar crash.

Wow, there might be some other reason. Diabetes and hypothyroidism can also cause fatigue after eating, as diabetes can reduce the absorption of glucose, while hypothyroidism makes the thyroid glands unable to produce enough thyroid hormones.
