I do at weekends because I made big dinners for me and my fiancee. Once we've eaten, we like to have a little nap. You're not ill, it's just where you are full up on food. I get it if we go out for a meal and eat a lot as well.

Hi, I think I have similar experience with you. It is a normal phenomenon, the diffirence lies on this phenomenon for some people is weak while strong for other people. Especially, after people eat full, it is usaually to fall into doze.

Every feel sleepy after having a heavy meal. It is not good for health. your friend is right. you should stand up and walk around for 10min.. After that you can go to sleep. If you are directly sleeply after having heavy meal if will effect your digestive system. You should eat little less to cure your problem..

Sometimes I feel like having a nap or shut eye after eating a heavy meal during lunch. I feel like dozing off right away and I have noticed it when the weather is humid and or when the weather is cool. And I have really experienced dozing off after eating insterad of just seating or standing after each meal. And I was so tired before eating and much more after eating that I really fell aslept on the sofa.LOL

The only time I fall asleep after consuming a meal is if it's heavily loaded with carbs, which happens to others in my family who have diabetes. I've been told before that it's a warning sign that my carbs are not being broken down fast enough to get the sugar through my system which ups my sugar level and in turn makes me sleep. Most of the time I don't even realize I have fallen asleep. It could very well be a medical problem but without either knowing what you consumed and how much or going to a doctor and being checked out there is no for sure way to tell.
