When you get sleepy after having a big meal, it needs to be knocked out. It is called food coma. We have listed down a few ways to cure this condition.

1. Drink plenty of water

You may want to skip a simple glass of water after having a holiday meal. But if you are bloated, your body needs to be hydrated. Increasing the water intake might help your digestive tract flush out excess sodium, which is having effects on your body. To make yourself drink water, infuse it with fruits, flavours or top it with ice cubes. 

2. Indulge in a light supper
