My dad says he feels tired after too fatty of a meal? Is this common?

What was in it?

Usually it's carbohydrate heavy meals that will make someone tired.

In general though any kind of food in the stomach makes you sleepy because both are dominated by the parasympathetic system.

Especially if it was enough food to make him feel stuffed afterwards.

(But it's more likely there's just a bigger prevalence of carbohydrate than he may have realized.)

Most people have very little conception of what's fatty and what's not.

Some people consider foods like donuts and mashed potatoes and gravy to be greasy. These foods are clearly carbohydrate heavy (with high GI indexes) and will result in a tired feeling. Also, there's no telling he's eating KFC with biscuits and a large soda then blaming his tired feeling on the fried chicken, when clearly the carbs are to blame.

Nope, this is incorrect as "fat" can be either good or bad depending on the sources.


For example, saturated fats are actually neutral or positive for cardiovascular risk:

In fact, whole milk (of which there is a lot of saturated fats) actually shows neutral or positive increases in cardiovascular health:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11350992


The fats we want to avoid are mainly the omega-6 polyunsaturated fats which are gotten in diet through eating lots of processed foods. Most processed foods contain a lot of vegetable oils or industrial seed oils which are typically high in O6s. O6 are inflammatory which set the body on a collision course with lots of the diseases of civilization like diabetes, metabolic syndrome, heart disease, stroke, auto-immune like rheumatoid arthritis, crohn's, and even neurological disorders such as alzheimer's and parkinson's for example.
