Why Turkey Shouldn't Get All the Blame for Your Thanksgiving Sleepiness
Lots of things, it turns out, including what we did the night before the big feast, how many helpings we ate of Nana's marshmallow sweet potatoes, what we drank with our meal, and what activities we have planned for Thursday evening.

As a reminder, always consult your doctor for medical advice and treatment before starting any program.
