Heavy meals can cause the cells covering the interior wall of arteries to become sluggishly and sticky, a condition called endothelial dysfunction.
This leads to decreases blood supply to the organs. In your case, the heart. The heart rate increase due to the increased demand without the appropriate supply of blood.
