Best Answer

Simple physics and Biology...

When you eat something, it need to be digested... the secretion in your mouth begins to breakdown the food as you are chewing it. The stomach also churns out acids and other digesting chemicals...

once broken down, the nutrients are the absorbed by the blood in the small intestines... the more food you eat the more blood required to get the nutrients.

You feel cold because the blood is reduced from the skin area and diverted to your tummy... less blood means less energy means less heat...

After a while you'll feel all glowy and satisfied... after the blood's done its work and now it brings the nutrients to your muscles and you'll feel warmer... Cheers..
