So, since this is the science category I’d like to do a little experiment.
I’ve started Keto on January 1st and I happen to use an Apple Watch.
I monitored my heart rate during the adaptation period, and I was really surprised. My resting heart rate was hovering around the 90-100bpm almost all day. I even put on the watch during bedtime to monitor my heartrate and it was the same levels.
Now I’m 6 weeks into Keto and my heart rate is back to normal. It is in the 67-75 range while resting.
I find this very interesting and didn’t notice anyone talk about this, so I wonder if I’m just an N=1 or if there are other people starting out that can provide similar feedback. Any Smartwatch with a heart rate monitor would do just fine.
Any theories what it could be related to?
