Since you posted in a thyroid forum, are you wondering if you might have hyperthyroidism?  And if so, have you gotten thyroid function blood testing done and with what results?  The heart does tend to speed up I believe, when you are digesting.  

For those of us who suffer from orthostatic intolerance (I have P.O.T.S.- postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome, and I was told it could run in families or something along that line), after eating a large meal, it can be particularly a challenge trying to do much in the way of walking or sometimes, even standing, because of the rapid heart rate.  My heart races to prevent me from passing out it was explained to me with P.O.T.S.  For me, I have low and high blood pressure- mine can spike with standing, because my body overcompensates for the orthostatic intolerance by kicking in too much catecholamines, elevating my blood pressure.  I have a cousin who had P.O.T.S. too.  If you want to know more, check out the dysautonomia forum here on medhelp and info pages!  

Rapid heart rate can cause you to sweat, so have you taken your pulse after you eat to see what it is doing?  Also, have you ever had your heart checked in regards to this to be sure all is well with it?

Deconditioning can tend to make problems with rapid heart rate worse and exercise can help raise your good cholesterol, which is supposed to fight the bad cholesterol.  Perhaps if you get all major medical problems ruled out, you could get your wife to begin walking with you for thirty minutes five times a week, and maybe you would happily find your symptoms getting a little better?
