How about getting more sleep the night before? It 100?percent effective.
Well, let's be honest. Your body wants
to shut down for a break after lunch because it requires extra energy to digest food. In addition, depending on what he eats, there could be a spike in his blood-sugar level which will have to come down. The real answer is two-fold:
- Get more sleep, and
- Eat a sensibly-sized and relatively healthy meal.
I'm not kidding about this. I used to get super-tired two to three times per day
. I picked up a couple diet books that focused on sugar and carb intake. One was Atkins, but that was way too extreme since I'm a tennis player and need to have carbs to freaking live.
The other was The South Beach Diet
. What TSBD taught me was that it's not about avoiding carbs and sugars. It's about avoiding the bad
carbs and sugars. If it's white, it's bad for you. It's been over-processed. If it's loaded with sugar, the same thing goes. Now, I eat white bread, snack on grain crackers, and I use NatraTaste
as a sugar substitute (no bad aftertaste!). Lastly, I also snack constantly throughout the day instead of having one meal at lunch.
The point of all of this is that your trying to keep your blood sugar level steady and constant throughout the day. Eating large meals or having a lot of bad carbs/sugars can cause fluctuations in your blood sugar level. If your one of those people that gets extremely tired after lunch, your blood sugar is one potential culprit for it, and blood-sugar is very easily managed if you just eat better.
