User :   I am a healthy 33 year old man. Due to high LDL levels ( 149 ) I started a low fat diet about a month ago. Fruits, vegetables, Omega 3 (fish), fiber, etc. My heart rate after i wake up used to be around 55. Since then I lost 5 pounds and my heart rate went down to 46 when i wake up. I also exercise 1 hour at the gym 3 to 4 times a week. During the day it goes up to around 65.
