I have cheese and ham wrap for lunch and am feeling really tired now. Had plenty of sleep and was doing fine before lunch so would it be the wheat or the cheese do you think or the ham? It's also made me feel heavy, IYKWIM

It's because humans are by nature supposed to be having a nap at this time of day, I reckon. Body clock and all that.

I thought it might be the bread. I love the idea of an afternoon nap

It's the bread. I cut bread out for a few months and the difference was amazing. Have just moved to France and now find myself succumbing to a delicious baguette with pate or cheese for lunch once or twice a week. I always feel exhausted afterwards and swear never to do it again.

PS - By bread I mean carbs including pasta and rice

Yep - definitely carbs that do this.

right I think it's time to cut down on the carbs and feel a bit more with it. Thank you
