    Perhaps you are hypoglycemic, and what you're eating doesn't help.

    I suggest either seeing your doctor about this, but there is plenty of information about hypoglycemia on the net. I am not a doctor and I don't want to misdiagnose you.

    That is a good question. The first thing a DR will do is run a test to see if your sugar level is too high or too low. I also go through that and it does not matter what I eat I still get right down tired. I can have all the energy in the world but once I eat something I am down for the count, drained of all energy and can not function for anything all I want to do is sleep.

    Let me know what you come up with. I thought about the test but,the only problem is you have to fast and if I don't at least drink 1 cup of coffee in the morning and unfortunately I add cream and sugar in my coffee but I get sick and throw up so fasting is not an option for me. so I don't know how I would be able to do the test.

    I would investigate blood sugar levels. It is quite common for people to feel tired after eating due to variations in blood sugar levels and insulin secretion.
