more time for the blood to return
from the brain and muscles to the
stomach when you are tired than
when you are refreshed by rest
For the short lunch hour the food
selected must be limited in amount
and of the kind that does not over
stimulate the digestive organs. Pud

heavier on the stomach than plain
