A food coma is usually when a person eats too much and they get very tired due to a high influx of insulin in their blood that tries to balance out the massive rush of glucose from food.

There was some research looking at nap latency, but I was more interested in long-term effects like development of chronic diseases or effect on the body.

  • Are you essentially asking what happens if you keep eating too much? Feb 25 '18 at 21:43
  • No, that would be "Long term health consequences of eating too much". I wonder if brain activity changes, or sleep patterns are affected. Would brain fog be long term? Would it make a person more susceptible to food comas over time? I've discovered a connection with type-2 diabetes too...
