Avoid sweets: Some people have hormone changes occur after eating sweets that make them drowsy. Most often, these people are on their way to getting diabetes if they don't have it already. To avoid this, avoid eating concentrated sweets, or do something physically active to offset the drowsiness. Caffeine may be helpful, but can also set someone up for feeling even more drowsy later on when it wears off.
