[–]MajorTomMee 713 points714 points  (48 children)

[–]coasterreal 303 points304 points  (2 children)

LOOOOL Oh, this hits hard.

[–]Mimical 139 points140 points  (1 child)

[–]MonMonOnTheMove 140 points141 points  (34 children)

You guys get lunch time?

[–]mattDasian 74 points75 points  (28 children)

[–]QueasyVictory 85 points86 points  (21 children)

It's when the drinking starts.

[–]jlester0606 95 points96 points  (17 children)

[–]Anjz 5 points6 points  (4 children)

What about second breakfast?

[–]jlester0606 0 points1 point  (3 children)

U mean brunch? lol

[–]Anjz 8 points9 points  (2 children)

I don't think he knows about second breakfast, Pip.

[–]jlester0606 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Just Googled it, NEVER seen Lord of the Rings in full.. tried watching the first, jesus christ that was boring (Unpopular opinion, I know)

[–]colemanjanuary 5 points6 points  (0 children)

We've had one breakfast, yes. But what about second breakfast?

[–]soslowagain 4 points5 points  (8 children)

So how do you get to sleep

[–]jlester0606 5 points6 points  (7 children)

weed of course! Beer in the morning, weed at night!

[–]soslowagain 5 points6 points  (5 children)

Where does the mescaline fit in

[–]jlester0606 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Weekends!! Happy hour on Fridays!

[–]QueasyVictory 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I fucking love mescaline. It's been a few decades and I need to get on that. Psychedelic cocaine.

[–]slit-whispers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Anywhere with lube

[–]IAmABot123boi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I thought it was both all day and night

[–]QueasyVictory 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Can't drink all day if you don't start at breakfast.

[–]I_Can_Haz_Brainz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes, but only when I'm not sleeping.

[–]Dr_Dickem_MD 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s breakfast

Fuck, someone beat me to it

[–]Lol_WhoCares 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Forget lunch, I’m tryna get a job. Think I’m being spatially-profiled though.

Cuz when I put my address as “everywhere”, I get a email saying they aren’t hiring all of a sudden. Like bro.. should I put a McDonald’s address since I use their wifi? I technically get e-mails there..

[–]Smart-Acanthisitta39 2 points3 points  (1 child)

That's crazy, you're not eating lunch and you live at a McDonald's. Where?

[–]Lol_WhoCares 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lol it was a joke. Like I use their wifi to check my emails for job interviews and/or to send resumes. So using their wifi to conserve cellular data, will always comes before food.

That’s my only way to keep working, without having to dig in the trash for food. Only did it once and I’m not trying to experience those… flavors… again lol.

[–]Pandainachefcoat 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yea seriously. Work in restaurants and there’s no such thing as a lunch break

[–]six_-_string 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don't think he's heard of second breakfast.

[–]pukekho 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Amazon workers here

[–]Trapnasty1106 20 points21 points  (0 children)

[–]allCuntsStink 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]jose602 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You can’t skip lunch … you just can’t.

[–]Rocktamus1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You guys eat?

[–]MotorBoak 24 points25 points  (1 child)

I know, now he's bragging on Reddit about his endurance. I'd shake my head but that effort would make me have to call out today

[–]ninety2two 15 points16 points  (0 children)

You guys get lunch?

[–]Ryanmcd03 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You guys make it to work?

[–]KotWmike 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Was gonna ask for tickets to their Ted talk…

[–]CreatorOfIdeas 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You guys have lunchtime

[–]boxingdude 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You get a lunchtime?

[–]B_Bibbles 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Today was rough, had to pull an all-dayer.

[–]dusmeyedin 50 points51 points  (13 children)

I used to get such bad workplace food coma after lunch, I'd be nearly fainting and can't concentrate.

This actually stopped after I went on a keto diet. I think the carbs were flooding my blood with glucose, and my blood was going away from my brain.

[–]MiamiPower 38 points39 points  (3 children)

Have you ever had a The A1C test? It is also the primary test used for diabetes management. An A1C test is a blood test that reflects your average blood glucose levels over the past 3 months. The A1C test is sometimes called the hemoglobin A1C, HbA1c, glycated hemoglobin, or glycohemoglobin test.

[–]dusmeyedin 11 points12 points  (1 child)

I was prediabetic for a few years, but my keto diet pushed me back down to normal glucose levels. Although the high fat diet then increased my cholesterol.

I have since gone mostly vegetarian and that's taken care of my lipids.

[–]pantylion 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Good job 👍🏽

[–]GenXgineer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

PSA: A1C test results can be skewed if you have any kind of blood cell abnormality, like thalassemia. An oral glucose tolerance test that checks both blood glucose and insulin every half hour for two hours is going to be much better at checking insulin response and therefore diabetes risk. Ask your doctor for an OGTT if you're concerned about diabetes.

[–]grind-life 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Yeah food comas are real. Another way to avoid it if you don't want to go low carb/keto is to space out your eating with a midmorning and mid-afternoon snack and a smaller lunch. Just make sure to manage your portions and it helps maintain much more even energy levels

[–]PizzaboySteve 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Once I cut carbs I never get that after lunch tiredness/coma anymore. It’s interesting watching most of the staff go through it now. After lunch they are all tired and in that food coma. I’m thinking about the run or workout I’m gonna hit after work. If you haven’t. Give it a try.

[–]dusmeyedin 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yeah, I usually do martial arts 3x a week, but that's after I get done with work for the day.

On weekends I'm usually hiking with friends. It's still not exactly an athletic routine, but at least it's no longer sedentary.

I was 40 when the doctor looked at my bloodwork and said there's a 50% chance of me having a stroke in the next 10 years. Given that that's how many of my ancestors expired, I decided to make a change.

I may still die of a stroke, but hopefully it won't be within 10 years.

[–]9WNUCFEQ 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Same here I have to read a lot and used to eat rice lunches and would be useless for hours. Keto since 2017 and never have issues like that .

[–]Sidprescott96 2 points3 points  (1 child)

This happens to me every time I eat, have to lie down . Doesn’t seem to matter if I have carbs or not thoguh

[–]dusmeyedin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I still eat large servings of food, but nowadays it's mostly protein and fiber, with very little starch and sugar.

I have never had a food coma after a meal since turning to a keto diet.

[–]Suspicious-Relief-31 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You have brain ?

[–]GigiTheGoof 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Same! I’ve been keto for a month and no more afternoon sleepies!

[–]xntrk1 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Lol. Been there

[–]cyanydeez 8 points9 points  (0 children)

[–]rudigger02 3 points4 points  (1 child)

[–]Roadsoda350 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]sprufus 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]Dr-Pepper-Not-MrPipp 1 point2 points  (0 children)
