Does Eating Turkey Make You Sleepy?

Ah, Thanksgiving Day. You pile your plates with turkey, dressing, two kinds of potatoes, cranberries - all the traditional foods - and dig in. Second helpings? Of course! An hour later, after plenty of food and conversation, you push back and notice you've become very, very sleepy. You think, 'I’m sleepy because turkey is high in tryptophan.'

True? Or myth?
