A period after a large meal, usually resulting in a feeling of drowsiness and the need to unbuckle your belt. Common days where a Food Coma is prevalent are Thanksgiving and Christmas due to the importance of huge meals and overly fattening food.
I experienced a major Food Coma over Thanksgiving Break, because my mom made stuffing, turkey, mashed potatoes and pie... I ate all of it.

Eating so much food that you feel as if you are about to pass out or fall asleep.
Last night I went to McDonalds, taco bell, KFC, and pizza hut. I ordered two big macs, three chalupas, twelve piece bucket of chicken, and a supreme pizza. After eating, I was not able to move, so I called in sick the next day and told my boss that I was suffering from a food coma.

An excuse to blow off work after eating too much at lunch.
I think I'm gonna crawl under my desk after that heaping helping of mashed potatoes, because I can already feel the food coma creeping up on me...
