... eat salad during the day and at night I have a normal meal just before bed
Fatigue after eating can be a symptom of diabetes. Hight blood glucose levels can lead to sleepiness and fatigue. Have your blood glucose levels checked and monitored. If diabetes is ruled out, large heavy meals can cause fatigue as the food is digested. Especially when the foods eaten are high in tryptophan. Tryptophan is particularly plentiful in chocolate, oats, dried dates, milk, yogurt, cottage cheese, red meat, eggs, fish, poultry, sesame, chickpeas, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, spirulina, bananas, and peanuts. Despite popular belief that turkey has a particularly high amount of tryptophan, the amount of tryptophan in turkey is typical of most poultry, chicken actually being the highest in poultry. There is also a myth that plant protein lacks tryptophan; in fact, tryptophan is present in significant amounts in almost all forms of plant protein, and abundant in some, such as sesame and sunflower seeds.
I also have narcolepsy. I don't know that daytime eating adds to the affects of narcolepsy... but, if I eat during the day, it knocks me out. So, I only eat at night. I have never discussed this to my doctor. Now, I don't even get hungry during the day. The thought of food before night makes me want to puke.
