Digestion takes energy. Exercise of any kind after eating a normal or large meal can cause stomach cramping. Special attention to swimming/drowning...

That is an urban mith Swimmers eat all day long at swim meets and before practice. the stomach uses a different energy source for digestion. now eating twinkys before a work out may slow you down in a race but it will not make you drown
