Heart Rate Questions
I found this article interesting: [can't-post-link (1)] My resting rate is usually in the low 50's -- around 51bpm on a good day and closer to 56bpm on an average day (I'm 30.) I usually skip breakfast. Today, I was busy at lunchtime... (more)
I have been paleo for two weeks now, though gluten and dairy free for over a year. I am eating low enough carbs for the past week (below 50g) to be in ketosis, and the body fat is dropping. All good. I have noticed, though, that when I lie in... (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.
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)
I recently had a heart monitor (Holtor Monitor) for 48 hours issued by my GP after a recent dizzy spell that resulted in fainting. My test results came back as technically "normal", but my GP was a little alarmed that my heart rate varied... (more)
There are a couple discussions about this online, but none of them answer my questions. I've noticed since I started adding coconut oil and MCT into my diet, I've been experiencing heart palpitations. My best analogy regarding how it feels is the... (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 am trying to figure out why my heart rate skyrockets even when doing a light jog. This has been happening more over the last year, where a jog at best in the past would get my heart rate up to the 140 bpm now it quickly goes to 165 or higher in... (more)
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.
Okay, I have asked a similar question before. And so have others. But hopefully this is simpler/more refined/more specific. Since going low carb my pulse is stronger. Ive been low carb for 2 months, at now around 55-65 grams a day. At night, in... (more)
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.
hello again, i am interested in finding out if i have any food sensitivities - i highly suspect wheat and dairy. i have eliminated them from my diet, and then reintroduced them. but i'm not sure if i am over analyzing the return of symptoms such... (more)
I woke up this morning with good intentions of working up a sweat at the gym, threw on my gym clothes- heart rate monitor strapped on-, ready to go and then proceeded to lay down on my couch to "meditate", I woke up two hours later, looked at my... (more)
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've looked through all the posts here and don't see anything that quit fits. I've been Paleo for six weeks -- very strict (no eggs or dairy or nighshades due to an autoimmune disorder). Before I started, my resting pulse rate was in the 60's.... (more)
Alright, I was doing sprints earlier today and wearing a heart rate monitor/ garmin watch. I sprinted about 100 yards, walked back and repeated about 10 times. Afterwards, I plugged in my watch to my computer to look at the specifics of my... (more)
I was recently diagnosed with premature ventricular contractions and I've been living 80/20 for a year plus. I went to decaf for a week and saw the intensity of the PVC decrease. Upon further reading I see articles related to balancing... (more)
I'm 65 (march 16) and have a resting pulse of 60-70. I've been doing interval exercises power walking uphill, back down, about 8 times for the past 6 months or so. Curious, I measured my pulse the other day for the first time with a watch with a... (more)
I saw a website with resting heartrate chart. It inidcated that lower heartrate is preferable. Athletes were classified as fittest category with lowest resting heart rate. Website inferred that athletes were more fit and have more efficient... (more)
Recently I was told by a cardiologist that I have "premature ventricular contractions." They just appeared out of nowhere in the last 3 weeks. I am currently weaning myself of caffeine and have yet to see a decrease. Salt is next to go. The events... (more)
There have been a couple threads on this already, but not in awhile and not in combination with heart rate. So I've been doing some reading lately about body temperature and heart rate. 1) Is body temperature a good indicator of... (more)
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:)
I am concerned that I may be overtraining as I have seriously increased my volume over the past two weeks. Regardless of the best approach (reduce volume until I perceive I am better) I found a website that has an "Overtraining Test." It seems... (more)
65 years old today and since last september when diagnosed as type II diabetic I have been paleo--ing myself. Naturally I have had many tests. My info so far is: HDL up 33% to 49 LDL down a bit to the 170's Triglycerides totally tanked down... (more)
I have a friend who's just getting into high intensity interval training, but he's a little concerned about going too intense with the intervals because he doesn't know how his blood pressure medication may affect things. He's almost 50 and in... (more)
