POSTPRANDIAL SOMNOLENCE! Have you experienced this?? If you've ever experienced that "ooh I ate too much and now I'm groggy and want a nap" feeling, then you certainly have!

In this Thanksgiving-themed episode, Jeremy unpacks the science behind why we feel so sleepy after a big meal. What's the reason? Is it the tryptophan? Is it the sugar? Is it the time of day? Listen and find out :)

Gobble gobble, dear listeners! We are so thankful for you!
