We Spend Nine Full Days a Year in a Food Coma

Plus the Top Foods That Cause One

November 7, 2018

According to a new study, the average American spends 213 hours a year in a food coma.  That's nine days!

After we eat a super heavy meal with lots of meat and carbs, it takes an average of one hour and 22 minutes before we feel sharp and ready to work or, really, do anything and we have about two or three of those meals every week.

The most common foods that knock us out are: 

  • Burgers
  • Pizza
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Burritos
  • Fries
  • Hot dogs
  • Tacos
  • Cheese
  • Potato chips
