Rice and Lunch.. is it just me?

Ok folks, some days I bring lunch from home and somedays I get it from the amru shops downstairs.. when I get it from home it is usually rice (southie you see ) and when I order it out it is usually Meat loaf and mashed potatoes. This is my observation. When ever I get food from home and eat stomach full I get droopy and sleepy while when I get the amru food and eat it more than full even, I dont feel that drowsy..

Is it just me or is this a problem with consuming rice?

I have observed the same phenomena when I order chinese or thai food.. common factor again happens to be rice.

I always feel sleepy after Indian or Thai for lunch but never if I eat a sandwich or pizza. Maybe it is the rice that slows us down.

it is definitely the rice that make you lethargic. i used to feel like this too after a heavy lunch. so for the last 6-9 months i have taken to eating fruit only for lunch. i have found that it makes me feel much better during the afternoon.

I think its rice

Usually we have rice and dal on a Saturday afternoon. It really make me very drowsy. If I have chapati and eat more than what I eat when rice is the dish, I dont feel sleepy.
