The persistent feeling of tiredness can be caused by many things. Your situation could be as severe as a mild case of narcolepsy, or as mild as tossing and turning in bed so much that you have lost sleep.

Other possibilities include sleep apnea, sleep deprivation, insomnia and even depression.

Evaluate your sleep schedule as well as your bedding. To maximize energy replenishment, try going to bed at the same time every night and waking up at the same time every morning. Do this on your days off from work or school as well. Also be sure that you get about 7 to 8 hours of sleep, no more and hopefully no less.

Clean linens and blankets will aid in comfort, as well as wearing comfortable clothing while asleep.

Elevating your legs while sleeping will slow down your heart-rate, which can save energy as you sleep making re-energizing more efficient.

What could a person do to stop sugar making them sleepy without cutting out sugary foods?

You can't. Sugar makes blood sugar levels spike quickly; that's why you feel like bouncing off the walls after you have sugary stuff. As soon as the blood sugar drops again, the contrast will make you feel more drowsy than before. I guess you could keep eating sugary stuff all the time until you collapse... but until you do you probably won't feel sleepy at all :)

Why turkey makes you sleepy?

There is no scientific proof that turkey causes sleepy feelings. It was once thought of from tryptophan in all protein meats not just turkey and therefore has been shown to be a myth. If you feel sleepy after eating turkey it is most likely you have just overeaten and have flooded your body with carbohydrate overload. Then your body has to take all its energy and direct it at digestion leaving a small amt. of spare energy for other things and therefore you feel tired.
