Why do we feel sleepy after eating rice?

It's not only with rice but after all meals!;)

As far as I know it's because our brain concentrates on the digestive system(?), but before doing so, the brain has to "switch off" the other part, that's why we are not able to study after having meal and we get sleepy!:P

But some meals such as rice have more sleeping effect than other meals.

Hello Jackson6612,

How do you know that? Is it proved?:)
Hi Ana,

Yes, it is proved. Many people have experienced this problem. Above all, I have experienced it myself.
Hi,
I didn't know that. Well, I don't eat rice very often, but I've never noticed any strange effect. But do you notice strange effects when you only eat rice, or when you eat rice and something else, like rice with marijuana? LOL

I've never noticed any strange effect as well

Could I ask you to tell me who proved that? I'm just curious to know if it's scientifically proved! Maybe rice has special molecules inside, who knows!
KooyeenI when you eat rice and something else, like rice with marijuana? LOL
Where did you find that recipe? Emotion: tongue tied

You could also use Google.
As I can see that person was talking about carbs in general, not specifically about rice.

Anyway I usually eat pasta and rice at lunch but it doesn't make me feel sleepy that much since I only eat 80 g of them, maybe it's just a matter of quantity. I think that if I ate 1 kg of pasta or rice I would sleep all day long Emotion: tongue tied
