Answer:

Increase the temperature

Explanation:

Eating generally leads to a slight increase in body temperature, as your metabolic rate increases in order to allow the digestion of food. Note that there are a lot of chemical reactions happening inside the body during this time, from hydrolyzing your proteins, sugars and fats to simple molecules, and these produces the slight increase in body temperature.
