I'm diabetic since 4 years. My age is 32. I have a big bowl of porridge along with 2 glasses of milk with some dry fruits in it as a breakfast Also some bananas and other seasonal fruits. During lunch I have 12 chapatis or 8-9 bajra rotis, 2 subjis, 1 cooker container rice and dal, 1 bowl salad, a cup of lentils,4 eggs and Small mug of lassi(around 600ml). At 5pm I take 2 scoops protein powder (70gm) with 500ml milk. Dinner is somewhat same like the lunch. My fasting sugar remains between 100-110 and PP between 170-190. I do 2 hours of rigorous weight training and 30mins cardio 5 days of week. I don't take any medicine. Is this because of cortisol or is it related with meal?

Looking at the information given your weight training is burning some of the sugar!!!
What is your waist size?, have you had blood test for HbA1C and what the number?
You may need to go for eye check, foot check. There are many sport people who are diabetic and enjoying their sport activities.
Do you do any carb count or calorie count on your food intake.? One cooker container of rice, what is the weight of rice before cooking?

Feeling of sleepiness after meals is a natural response of the body and generally not a cause of concern unless it is extreme.The feeling of sleepiness comes because body is producing serotonin, particularly after eating protein-rich foods. This is very normal.
Cortisol does not cause sleepiness; in fact cortisol prepares you to face challenges of the day. That is why, the cortisol level is generally high early in the morning.
