    Agree with you there Sea.There's nothing 'normal' about how utterly crap I feel after I've eaten. I am now eating very small meals and trying to snack a bit to make up - but family meals are diffcult. I've been drinking a lot more but then I seem to be retaining the bloomin'fluids Arrgh can't win! lol.
    And the Siesta is about full on heat of the day. In Italy where my son was for a time the siesta was to get out of the sun and then at night shops and resturants and so on stayed open well into the night and heavy meals were eaten then too - without needing to stop the fun afterwards.

    I also wonder about the afternoon slump thing. I remember studies that suggested business lunches should be alcohol free as it affected post lunch productivity.

    I get very spacey and brain foggy after I eat - (well foggier I'm already chronically dizzy). It comes over my brain like cloud and I feel like I can't focus my eyes. I have POTS, but I feel like there's more to it than that. Heavy carbs are definitely worse. I had a GTT years ago and it showed that my sugar didn't move - it didn't really dip or rise, the levels just stayed flat. I'm curious about getting the test done again, but with insulin levels.

    Thanks for the suggestion, I've been meaning to look into this for quite some time. I actuall just heard a podcast on Dr. Lo, she interviewed a Dr. who believes that SIBO is THE cause of Fibro in every case. This sounds a little over the top, but still worth looking into as he had a lot of good info. I think he conducted a study in which upon testing all of the subjects were found to have SIBO. SIBO can rob you of melatonin and tryptophan which could cause all the crap symptoms we have......theoretically.
    THanks again,

    Bloated, fat and sluggish, lethargic if I eat. Perfectly fine if I juice.

    I get the dreaded catatonic sleepys/ depression where I feel drugged .. For me so far this is from ecoli bacteria stirred up in my upper intestine.. I take homeoapthic ecoli and that helps. THe ecoli is stirred up for me when I am treating for other bacteria as well as when I am detoxing the high oxalates in my body. I believe bacteria uses up things like oxalates and when they are being eliminated the oxalates are released causing what appears to be more problems .. THere is a natural hiarchy between bacteria. So when I went to eliminate mycoplasma all of a sudden a past salmonella infection took over.. This has been studied between cholera and salmonella / ecoli bacteria.. where once the cholera is killed off the other two grow in the gut...

    The food that makes me feel the best after eating is a salad.
    In the summer for dinner I often grate some carrot, also a wee bit of hard cheese, cut up some lettuce or salad leaves, 4-5 slices beetroot, 1/2 tomato, a wee bit of cucumber, 1/2 boiled egg, some sprouted beans and lentils, a little bit of chicken or ham slices and some mayonnaise.
    My stomach always feels good afterwards and I find an hour or two later I feel like I have an appetite and want to eat. Which is very good for me as most often I don't feel like eating.

    Yes! it's not everyday but about once a week. After I eat my first meal after waking up I get hit with what I call the "car crash feeling". I hurt all over and feel absolutely horrible. I tell my husband I wouldn't want to live anymore if I felt like this all the time. It's that bad.

    I have no idea why it happens. I plan on asking Dr. Chheda about it when I go to OMI next year.

    Nanciswell, funny you mention e-coli. My brain fog has worsened dramatically after taking an ecoli probiotic Symbioflor-2 for 2 weeks. A month later and it hasn't abated one bit. It's particularly worse after eating - especially after breakfast. Stomach grumbling noises after eating has also increased inline with the increased brain fog.

    Does anyone else (who still visits this forum) have these kind of symptoms @Junto was having post eating? Hyperinsulinism is an interesting theory, but my food reactions too closely resemble the issues people with mast cell disorders have. I also respond positively to immune modulators. Anyway, it'd be good to hear from anyone who has similar issues.

    Getting tired/sleepy after eating should be evaluated in several ways. There are many factors involve but the first one is the blood sugar needed to be eliminated. Then there is a huge list follows, including GERD, Heart, Blood Pressure so goes on... It is best to be checked by gastroenterologist on this one instead of symtomps.
