angina with large meals

Hi, I've read that you can experience angina following large meals. does anyone know the mechanism behind this i.e. why should eating a large and/or rich meal induce cardiac pain ?

Re: angina with large meals

The digestive process requires lots of blood, and blood is diverted away from the rest of the body in order to do this. That's why you should rest after a meal, and rest after eating, before swimming etc.
