Eating and Exercise: Yes, of course. There is truly no medical reason to time your exercise with a meal. But, if you eat heavily and feel sick with work out you may want to change the time of your exercise.

You can: And in fact a gentle walk may aid in digestion(at least motility wise) ... there have actually been studies in this regards. But you have to listen to your body. If you are going to try to jog or run, it may predispose you to nausea, heartburn, and stomach pains/cramps. If that's the case, just slow things down or stop all together.
