Cardiologist 's  Response
There is a physiological raise of blood pressure and heart rate just after eating, so it is recommended to mesure blood pressure at least 30 min after the meal.
And my advice also will be to lose weight.
It will decrease your blood pressure and heart rate additionally.

I hope I could answer to your question.
