Since going paleo, alcohol gives me an elevated heart rate which can last for up to 12 hours after drinking. This disrupts my sleep significantly so I cut back a lot, couple glasses of red wine once a week. I have tried different supplements,... (more)

Yes, so far had seen body temperature indicates our health. Body temperature should always between 97 degrees to 99 degrees which is normal one !! (may change as per continent). Heart rate is basic and most important indicator of health.... (more)

Maybe it has something to do with the fact that MCT oil is dreadfully high in saturated fat (as in, 70% of your daily allowance in 1 tablespoon). This may have health benefits, but heart health is not one of them. If you have a history of family... (more)

I am paleo 99% of the time, but on a day like today, sometimes dark chocolate is just too delicious to pass up! The past few times I have eaten it - we're talking 70-85% dark chocolate - my heart starts to race for about an hour afterwards. I feel... (more)

It's probably the caffeine/theobromine. It's not something a sensitive person would notice from white or milk chocolate probably, but it's quite concentrated in the darker versions.

I would at least rule out electrolyte imbalance. Eat more salt, bone or beef broth and take a Magnesium chelate supplement. Bananas or avocados for potassium. More seafood.

I have some of the same symptoms. I saw my doc today and she told me it can be due to a magnesium deficiency, or related to another electrolyte imbalance. I'm having bloodwork done, but supplementing with Magnesium couldn't hurt.

For leaning out purposes, why is it better to keep heartrate at65-75%' rather than higher for the duration of cardio? If you aren't consuming carbs won't it be fat that is burned anyway? Thanks peeps:)

It's all BS, IMHO. Do high intensity intervals and get the best of both worlds.

Several years ago, I noticed an occasional arrhythmia. My heart would beat fast (~150bpm) for 5-10 beats, then slow for a couple of beats to catch up, then back to the usual 50-80bpm. It typically occurs when I lie down. I went to a... (more)

3 things that come in to my mind immediately are: consider magnesium deficiency, get your thyroid checked, and you may be too sensitive to caffeine to drink it at all.

I can't guarantee the accuracy, overtraining (or at least overreaching) is a progressive condition and likely different with different people. By the time you're actually overtrained it's too late really. I'd expect it to be due to a complex... (more)

It's not just ketosis, but also sugar & salt withdrawal combined with fluid re-regulation. Make sure you are drinking enough water and getting adequate minerals in your diet.
