Hiya....ive been having these weird symptoms for a while now. When ever i have a full meal i get these symptoms.....tiredness/lethargic/foggyness/ hot....these last for a few hours and start maybe 30mins after i have a meal.

I only get these symptoms if i have a full meal.....never from a snack.

What could this be?? Anyone else get these symptoms?

    Hi vonniexx

    Foods containing tryptophan incurs a rise in insulin that will make us drowsy.....whatever food you are consuming check if the contain tryptophan.....best wishes.....

    If you didn't feel the way you do after a full meal then you wouldn't be human. 

    We all feel that way as blood is diverted to theheavy digestive function after such a volume of food intake.

      Hi vonniexx

      Beans contain tryptophan....if you consume too much tryptophan you can feel nauseas and tired......how much of the beans did you consume?...if too much maybe that was the cause of your problem.... you can still eat beans but cut down in future......smile

      Garlic and bread can be possible triggers too.  Try avoiding these foods or reducing your intake if them.  If you are experiencing problems after eating, it may be food related. Not everyone feels unwell after eating

    personally Vonnie, i would see your doctor & get checked for diabetes to be on the safe side as this only happens when you eat a full meal.
