I've cut simple sugars a lot and the sleepiness after a meal isn't so pronounced, but it is still there. Luckily Wellbutrin is enough of an appetite suppressant that I can eat a large meal once a day (supper) and not feel too hungry otherwise. It doesn't sound to me as if you have a blood sugar/insulin problem. People with that sort of problem tend to like simple sugars a lot and can't stop eating them. The only thing I can think of for you is if you eat mostly complex carbs and little meat, then you are depriving yourself of tyrosine in your diet. Normally your body depends upon the protein in your diet (largely the tyrosine, also phenylaline) to go to the brain and supply the starting chems for neurotransmitters. Logically cheese makes up for this difference.

Thanks,

That might explain my craving for *diet* sodas. So..if I bump up the proteins and meat consumption and reduce the fats I should lose weight and get the tyrosine I am craving..

Thanks,
Mitch
