It’s not so much about the turkey as it is about how much you’ve eaten. After a very large meal (like after Thanksgiving or Xmas), a lot of your blood goes to your stomach and intestines to aid digestion. This steals some blood from the rest of your body, thus making you lethargic and tired.
Sure, tryptophan May contribute a little bit, but it’s almost negligible.
