    Great as always! What type of melatonin do you take? I got a pharmaceutical 2mg depot kind on prescription which was very effective but a standard supplement with 3mg doesn’t seem to work for me.

    Hey Menno,

    Great content as always. How do you actually prevent this postprandial somnolence from occurring then? (Or at least minimising the effects) Eating smaller meals?

    Many thanks!

    • It’s tricky. Depending on the time of day, the macronutritional content can play a role, with protein generally causing the least fatigue. Certain foods may be worse than others, especially if someone has intolerances, which is common. Overall though, total energy intake has a big impact, so sometimes smaller meals are needed to stay sharp.
