In brief: Not worrisome

There is a network of nerves through the body that regulates heart rate and blood pressure.
Also, adrenaline is released into the bloodstream to speed up the heart rate and raise blood pressure with certain activities. Because your stomach and intestines need more blood flow after eating, it is possible for the heart rate to rise after eating. If you have symptoms, you should talk to your doctor.
