In general, do carbs make people sleepy? My wife and I started eating a little-to-no carb paleo diet about a week ago (lots of vegetables, fruits, meat), and we feel like we've already seen a change in our mood.
However, earlier today we decided to bake some sweet potatoes (lightly breaded in corn starch) because we love them, and they have more nutrients than your typical starchy food. A couple hours after eating them, my wife's stomach kept making noises (like a loud gurgle every couple minutes for a half hour), and she's feeling out of it and tired.
I'm curious, is this a typical reaction to carbs or starchy foods? We're definitely not planning on eating too many of them, but it was alarming to see her sudden change in mood and constant stomach noises.
