    What foods make a person sleepy?

    Turkey is often believed to because of its tryptophan content.  Is that factual?  What are some others?

    Those with too much fat especially when you have too many hours with an empty stomach and then eat a big amount of food.. Sugar gives energy only for a while.

    Eggs, a lite omelette around 6-7 pm.

    Only use 2 whole eggs and 2 egg whites', add some chopped celery or onion for

    taste, fry in a quality oil.

    Buy some Amino Acids from  your local health store contianing asparaganine and

    glutamine, take them with the omelette.

    This will give you all the necessary Amino Acids' needed to attain a good nights


    Hope this helps, let me know how you get on!

    Sleep tight.

    Kind Regards

    Turkey, meat, and dead stuff.  We're meant to eat vegetables, fruits, and if you eat dead stuff, it should be minimal!  Living food for living people!  smile

    Thank you everyone for some really great answers.  litsabd and Faceless39, you make some good points about what foods not to eat if you don't want a negative, drowsy feeling.  MP50, that sounds like a great way to get a good night of sleep.  I will have to try it out.  I have heard great things amino acids.

    Here's a very interesting article I recently read on why turkey makes us sleepy.http://recipes.howstuffworks.com/question519.htm

    I find if I eat fast food such as McDonald's I want to take a nap about 30 minutes after eating it. I try to avoid eating McDonalds food but sometimes I need a Big Mac fix smile

    Every time I eat something greasing or anything with fat I fall asleep in a second or become all drowsy and lazy... Cheeseburger, fries, and soda will make me happy this way...

    Turkey, carbohydrates, and sugar. Gluten free is the way to go. I have a dramatic increase in my energy levels and it seems to be endless. It's great and I totally recommend it. (And yes...it was hard to give up the carbs and the sweets, but once you do....WOW!). smile
