View Full Version : tired after eating dehydrated meals
12-25-2007, 09:47 PM
Okay, so i wouldn't feel deprived this christmas, i made myself some of my favorite dehydrated meals such as raw pizza, pesto mushrooms, meatballs. Really rich food. i noticed after eating meals that are centered around these foods(instead of greens or vegatables)i got really bloated and sleepy. Does anyone else experience this? Mind you i did eat more than i normally would because these meals are a treat, not an everyday thing, so maybe that had something to do with it? Let me know!! I actually had to have a nap after supper tonite!

I made Alissa's fettucinni and felt very sleepy and full into the next day (had 2 helpings of the stuff- very rich). I definately don't do well on the nut-heavy recipes.

Could be.. I don't know. I can't eat a bunch of dehydrated foods all at once because being dehydrated I guess they are dense and that means an extra hard workout for my digestive system. I think it's almost like when I used to eat way too many cooked carbed before raw, I have that same experience with too much dehydrated (sleepy/heavy feeling)Even though it's live food, it has still been processed so to speak and is now compacted. Try to drink a lot of water with the dehydrated foods; that's what I do. I must say that Alissa's enzymes (tried the pills) are excellent when eating a lot of dry dehydrated stuff. I tried them for the first time a few months ago. They greatly assist a sluggish digestive system and the process was smooth.

when u eat your parasympathetic nervous system shuts down to allow for digestion. So while your body digests you get tired because you heart and blood flow slow down so that your intestines can do their thing. So the more you eat, the harder your tummy works, and the tireder you feel, especially if your body isn't doing it's normal amount of work. That could be why you feel more tired. i hope i said all that right, feel free to correct me
