`eater’s coma’

This is a type of coma that we have all experienced some time or the other. How do we normally feel after a particularly heavy meal? Most of the time, we feel pretty sluggish; we don’t feel like doing anything. After some time, we begin to feel rather sleepy. This lazy and sleepy feeling that we have after a heavy meal is called `eater’s coma’.

Example:  If I eat everything that is on the table, I’ll lapse into an eater’s coma.
