During recovery, after eating a large meal with absolutely no chance of having gluten or allergens (milk, dairy, soy), do you guys feel 'tranq-d', and fall asleep for 2-3 hours?

This is a sign that your digestion is not working properly. Try digestive enzymes before you eat and eat smaller meals. Also, if your meal has lots of carbs, this could be a sign of candida overgrowth.

Most of the meals I eat tend to be low in carbs or especially low in any grains so what will happen with me is I'll get a craving for a big plate of spaghetti. Since it'll drive me crazy until I have it I'll make my special spaghetti sauce and of course tinkyada spaghetti noodles (I LOVE them) and eat usually way to much. The only thing is I'm heading off to bed by 9:00 that evening. Then the next day I'm tired too. Its one of those foods where I can't stop eating once I start.

Craving carbs is another symptom of candida overgrowth.

I'm skeptical about the whole 'candida' thing, as I haven't found a single reputable medical source that actually finds this a credible diagnosis.

IMHO craving carbs means you're eating too many of them. It happens when you eat a carby meal, your blood sugar raises up high, you release a lot of insulin to handle it, that quick drop in blood sugar starts off more hunger and desire for more carbs. I suppose it is useful for when you're packing away calories during the gathering season as a hunter/gatherer but it ends up as diabetes and obesity in our current society with 24/7 access to extremely high carb foods.

I also get very sleepy when I eat too many carbs. Generally I stick with meat, fruits, veggies, nuts, and that sort of thing. Every now and then I have rice and then I'm in going to be craving carbs again for awhile.

Did you know that white rice has a higher glycemic index than sugar?
