    When I eat bread an hour later I'm so tired and can't stay awake. Does this happen to anyone else?
    I know alot of us feel bloated, I get that too but seriously makes me so tired.
    Surely that can't be right?!

    I rarely have it, when I do it's toast. Even wholemeal or granery bread makes me sleepy.

    This is exactly why a low carb diet works for me. I used to get really sleepy and slow but now I am full of energy all the time.

    Yup it happens to me too, so I avoid bread and get my carbs from other sources, like wholegrain cereals.
