In Response To: Is Heart Rate and Metabolism Linked? (jeanb)
I have always had a very fast resting heart rate,
and my metabolism is average to fast. However,
since starting the type O diet, my resting heart
rate has decreased, yet I have not lost or gained
any weight. I attribute the decline of my heart
rate to eating fewer allergenic foods. When
eating wheat and corn, for example, it may have
been possible that my heart rate went up as a
symptom of an allergic reaction. If the diet helps
decrease the resting heart rate of those individuals whose heart rates are ver fast, then the diet (according to your theory) would cause us to 'gain' weight, rather than 'lose' weight. This would lie contrary to the intended goal of the diet- to lose weight and promote a faster metabolism.
