Move over turkey the carbs will make you sleepy too

- We've always heard the Tryptophan is what sends us into the need for post-Thanksgiving dinner naps.
But a new study says... otherwise.
You can blame the  turkey to a certain extent.
However, there's another reason for that must-need nap.
It's the side of carbs you ate with the turkey.
The stuffing... The potatoes... The pie crust... and for a lot of people, the alcohol.
Carbs jack up your blood sugar making you crash afterwards.
Experts suggest you load at least half of your plate with veggies.
