I'm a 23- year-old female and have been experiencing severe exhaustion after lunch daily for a few months now. I eat super clean, mostly paleo/autoimmune, but it seems no matter what I do I feel so exhausted after eating lunch.
It's the same pattern every day: I feel okayish in the mornings before noon, I try to keep my blood sugar steady and eat breakfast and a snack before lunch. I eat my lunch (I eat slowly and take a digestive enzyme), but about 30 minutes after eating a begin to feel exhausted. It lasts around 1,5-2 hours and I am literally falling asleep at work. I have gone to the bathroom to just close my eyes and take a mini nap several times and it's getting ridiculous, I can't think due to all the brain fog and exhaustion and get any work done in the afternoons.
Does anyone have an ideal what this could be related to?
