Fainting: As a general rule people should not exercise for two hours after a meal. The parasympathetic autonomic nervous system is activated during the digestive process. This will result in slowing of your heart rate and a slight reduction of your blood pressure. This is entirely normal. If you have symptoms of lightheadedness or fainting then consult your physician for further investigation.
