it is not recommended to do exercise after heavy meals because our stomach is full of meal and if we do exercise then it may lead to vomit n our intestine system get disturbed

Further it isnt optimal to exercise close to a meal because blood is drained to the gastrointestinal system for digestion, segmentation, absorption etc - during exercise you need blood to your muscles.

At first you'd better have a rest.... always, your body will take blood from other areas to help the stomach in digesting the food ( this is why you feel sleepy after a large meal ) plus all the exursion on a full stomach will most likely result in vomiting :(
