Resting Heart Rate Affected By Vegan Diet


These screenshots were taken from my Fitbit app three days ago. I had not looked at my data for a while and I was shocked to see how such a huge change was seen in a few days. My heart rate has always been high but since a kid I ate yoghurt and cheese almost every day.

Here is what it looked like just before I changed my diet:


It changed from day to day but very rarely went below 80. The next screenshot shows it beginning to lower after switching completely to a vegan diet:


I do not recall the exact day I stopped eating milk and eggs and made the switch but it was late February. My resting heart rate has gone down!

As a vegetarian I feel like I ate more cheese, eggs and milk products to compensate for the meat I was not eating. My views have changed so much since then after being exposed to what humankind are conditioned to think. I was a vegetarian because I did not want any animals to be killed just so I could eat them. I had no idea that by consuming milk and eggs that I was contributing to the death and awful mistreatment of many animals. The dairy and egg industries are cruel. I thought leather was just a by product of cows. A huge amount of leather is produced in other countries where the conditions are atrocious. I read somewhere on line that China was even using dog skin to produce leather. Many people who eat meat would think this is wrong so why do they think that it is OK from a cow? It’s because we have been conditioned to think that it is normal. That animals are here for our purpose. This is so wrong in my opinion.

Let me get back to my point! So here are two more screenshots of my resting heart and the lowest it has been so far (67):

It is incredible. I am assuming it is the lack of fat and cholesterol in my blood that is allowing my heart to pump slower. I have not found out much about the technicalities but if you have any ideas please comment below.

Disclaimer: These are just my results and not an actual scientific study. I have the Fitbit Charge HR which takes a reading from my wrist so will not be as accurate as a chest strap.

  1. Thanks for this post! I believe in everything that you are saying…. we have been so brainwashed for way too long, it’s atrocious!! Horrific! I hate it, I wish everyone would just go vegan right now. The pain and suffering of our dear animal friends is so painful to know that that is going on, and then to have some of my family members still drinking cow’s milk makes me very sad! And to know that their 9 year old son is being harmed right now by eating/drinking dairy is sickening! Thank you for sharing this, I know that my blood test results have gotten better and better! πŸ™‚


    1. That’s awesome! My blood pressure is perfect! I am going for some blood tests as part of a check up so it will be interesting to find out what I get. I feel the best I’ve ever felt though so I’d be surprised if they weren’t good. It is so horrible but I just have to keep reminding myself that I am on the right side and everyday people are being educated and becoming more aware and choosing to be vegan. 😊


  2. before i went vegan in high school, my resting bpm was in the 90s, and i remember because i was so embarrassed that it was high because i was (and still am) obese, so those things are just embarassing. now as a vegan, it’s consistently in the 60s, and even when i’ve been standing it’s only in the 70s, maybe 80s if i’ve been walking around. i really do think it’s because i changed my diet that my heart works more efficiently now
