sonnolenza post-prandiale -> postprandial somnolence, food coma, carb coma

Postprandial somnolence (colloquially known as a food coma or carb coma) is a normal state of drowsiness or lassitude following a meal. Postprandial somnolence has two components: a general state of low energy related to activation of the parasympathetic nervous system in response to mass in the gastrointestinal tract, and a specific state of sleepiness caused by hormonal and neurochemical changes related to the rate at which glucose enters the bloodstream and its downstream effects on amino acid transport in the central nervous system.

"Io non odio persona al mondo, ma vi sono cert'uomini ch'io ho bisogno di vedere soltanto da lontano".
Ugo Foscolo - "Ultime lettere di Jacopo Ortis"
