Why You Feel Sleepy After Eating A Big Holiday Meal

Provided By - Video Elephant on November 23, 2021
Many people believe that turkey is the cause of that tired feeling everyone gets after eating a big holiday meal. However, it turns out that turkey is not the main cause of this fatigue. Turkey contains the essential amino acid tryptophan, which helps the sleep-inducing hormone melatonin. This amino acid can be found in many other foods, and turkey does not contain a higher amount of it than most foods. Traditional holiday meals contain a lot of protein and carbohydrates, which studies have shown can be sleep-inducing. Eating too much can also cause fatigue, as the body requires more energy to digest the extra food. This means there is less energy for other activities. Many adults drink alcohol during a holiday meal, which can also cause tiredness. Alcohol is a central nervous system depressant with fast-acting sedative effects
