Interesting: I am dieting for only two weeks now and my heart rate at rest is going down according to my fitness tracker.

@adiabatic in my diet? I am doing intermittent fasting (16/8) and write down what I eat, so I try to eat/drink only around 1500 kcal/day. Since I am reducing what I eat I also look more at what I eat for getting all the nutrients I need (more fruit, nearly no processed sugar etc)

@nielsk Nice to hear that works for some people. A few years back, I ate a normal American diet and my LDL was kind of high and my systolic/diastolic/RHR were all a little bit too high. Now I do low-carb 5:2 or 4:3 IF, and my LDL, systolic pressure, diastolic pressure, and resting heart rate are all a little bit too high.


@adiabatic I don’t know how a normal American diet compares to my “German” diet. I have to say that I also never smoked and rarely drink alcohol and my BMI is already only a bit above 25; so it is more getting to a state of having a buffer before becoming overweight.
