I have exactly the same problem with you.But i think its normal.This happens to everyone(i think)because lots of your blood are being used to digest the food.I tried everything to solve this problem but the only way(success for me)is try to keep moving after eating,walking and walking again.Why don't you try?

U right.Am agree with u,IF our stomach full of food we will feel sleepy.My mom said too like ur mom's said.But i ignore her.i always sleep.I think if we eat much food make blood stop to our brain.So this bad habit will come.

I never really feel sleepy after eating. That is really a reason why I don't like to eat more than a few hours before going to sleep. In fact, I really just am going to feel more awake to say the very least. Of course, it is not really a good idea to eat too soon right before bed, because it may lead to a few restless nights, at least in my experience. So I never really feel all that tired right after eating. In fact, I am just going to feel even more awake to say the very least. There are just going to be times where I am just going to really be kept up, and those times where I do need to stay up, I normally eat something to keep me more alert. That's the reasons why I'm not awake until I eat my breakfast.

Yeah,i know that it's not right to do but also i have the habit,too.Many people just do this,so what we gonna do is to learn to control this and make our body healthy and light.Sugary foods just cause sleepy and this is indeed not good for our health.Good luck and have a nice day.

Sleeping,right after eating,makes us gain weight and cause our liver to work sluggishly.I avoid sleeping,after having a sweet and try to exercise.Mark your mom's words as they come with experience,and she is speaking for your benifit.

It is because when we sleep our body rest, even our organs rest too. If we sleep when we are full, it will be hard for our organs to work.

hi there, i have a thinking just like this, after we having meal, the oxygen is concentrate on our stomach to help in digesting, and less of it to be deliver to our brain so that we will feel sleepy :) but in this year, i heard a friend tell me, those who like to sleep after eating, is because of high in cholesterol. so i really worry about this, because i also like to sleep after eating.

Yes, people will feel sleepy after eating. This is because after people eated something, blood gathered in stomach so there is not enough blood for brain. Then people feel sleepy. You are right, this bad habit comes automatically :)
