I've been noticing this for some time now. Eating a Starch (potato or rice) and fat (coconut oil/butter) meal will send me to sleep.
This isn't a problem when I eat starch without the added fat. It usually doesn't happen when I ingest sugar (coke, OJ, etc)
Why does eating starch+fat force me to take a nap?

Well, I guess it could be a good thing
if you wanted or needed to take a nap.

Have you noticed what it does to your temps and pulses?

do you eat a lot more salt with the starch meal?

That's very possible, I'll have to keep an eye on my salt consumption.

Ray likes a moderate protein intake. People think when he says a high carb mean he means much higher carbs to protein.
