Not eating enough or eating the wrong food can cause fatigue. Foods high in sugar and simple carbohydrates can cause your blood sugar to peak and crash.
Always eat a healthy breakfast that includes protein and complex carbohydrates to avoid fatigue and keep your energy levels stable.
Hidden food allergies can make you sleepy. If your fatigue increases after a meal you should eliminate foods one at time from your diet to determine the possible cause.
Fiber from foods such as beans takes longer to digest and helps extend the energy boost you get from carbs for long-lasting energy.
The easiest way to avoid the “post-meal coma” is to eat smaller portioned meals throughout the day. This will keep your body fueled regularly and can help you lose weight.
