So, I just came off of a 19 hour fast today and, planning on this being my only meal of the day, headed to the Whole Foods buffet. I had (about) 6 oz of beef, 2 eggs (in a canola oil mayo), and 4 oz of chicken, plus four cups of broc and one cup melon (HUGE MEAL).

So, my body's response to this was to fall asleep about 20 minutes after. Is this coincidence or meal size? It was about 430 pm and I was forced to get a coffee to stay awake for class. Mike OD mentioned that as long as the meal is not a carb bomb, the insulin response shouldn't be dramatic; however, I usually only get that type of response if I eat a lot of carbs...so, is that result merely a response to the gargantuan size of the meal?
