I think its normal to feel sleepy after eating. The body focuses on using its energy to process the food you have just consumed and thus GET energy. I find that eating until I'm 80% full leaves me less sleepy and I also try to ensure that my meals are quite high in fibre. Also drink water after your meal as this helps to reduce tiredness!

Maybe you should not eat a meal that will leave you with a fuller stomach. This can bring about fatigue. Maybe you could also eat in smaller bites that may could help too. And napping before you have a big meal may reduce sleepiness too.

Hello savitha. The same case happens to me as well, but it is after lunch rather than the other meals. That is why I find it a must for me to take a nap after lunch. If I don't take a nap after lunch, I will feel very sleepy in the afternoon working hours.

They said that the stomach is doing its duty after eating, so it is normal that you feel sleepy after eating. The digestive system is working afterwards.
