Intermittent Fasting Improves Resting Heart Rate

Lower resting heart rate today 👏🏻

After 8 weeks of intermittent fasting my weight is down from 130.5kg to 124.5kg that’s a reduction of 6kg. Although there doesn’t seem to be any visible signs of the weight loss so far 😒

But as a bonus my resting heart rate has improved from 65 beats per minute to 56 beats per minute.

My health app supplies the following explanation.

About Resting Heart Rate

Your resting heart rate is the average heart beats per minute measured when you’ve been inactive or relaxed for several minutes. A lower resting heart rate typically indicates better heart health and cardiovascular fitness.

You may be able to lower your resting heart rate over time by staying active, managing your weight and reducing everyday stress. Resting heart rate does not include your heart rate while you’re asleep and is validated for users over the age of 18.
