getting tired after i eat/does turkey make you tired?
everyday after i eat my lunch at school, around 12, i get really tired and sometimes even sleep in my next class. i dont eat a lot though, just a sandwich, drink, and some other snacks like pretzels or grapes. some people told me its because of the turkey in my sandwich. does eating turkey make you tired?

That's the theory about turkey. Turkey contains tryptophan which aids in sleep.
However, IMO, it's not the turkey that's making you sleepy. I think you're eating too many carbs (bread, drink, pretzels or grapes) and your body is diverting energy to digest the sugars.
