Flashback Friday: Slow Your Beating Heart – Beans vs. Exercise Updated on December 13, 2019 By William Clement 38 Comments By William Clement 38 Comments Phat Vegan December 13, 2019 AMAZING!! Reply SanbuSanbu December 13, 2019 ♥♥♥ Reply Anne Plowman December 13, 2019 Thank you! Reply deviltzu December 13, 2019 as a kid our teacher got us to measure our resting heart beats; I lied and said mine was over 150 thinking that I would be better than everyone; I came last Reply Mrs. Smith December 13, 2019 That's amazing, I hope I eat enough beans! thanks for sharing Reply Ivy Winwood December 13, 2019 I have a low resting heart rate. It can range from 40 to 52. I've been vegan 6 years. My heart rate dropped lower once I started running, pre running it was a resting rate of 55. I had a heart rate test and it came out fine. After I started running, I usually have 40 to 48 resting heart rate unless I am stressed out. Reply Daily D December 13, 2019 Maybe its the lectins slowing the heart Reply Dinar AndFriends December 13, 2019 It's the same with blood pressure, iron and cholesterol: doctors compare their patients with the rest of the population, and therefore use norms which are, themselves, unhealthy. They are capable of using a blood pressure cuff and taking a blood sample, but don't expect them to draw any intelligent conclusions from the results. Reply Mate Marijan December 13, 2019 Vegans will prove anything to make their ideology valid Reply JodyJohn123 December 13, 2019 But could an optimal blood pressure count ( 90/60) and/or a perfect pulse count ( under 50 pulses per minute) Either oneBe a symptom of dementia In comparison to a stronger BP countI’m not including such items as learning new information, socializing, exercising, etc to deter the onset of the illness Reply wayne busse December 13, 2019 I went to see my oncologist last week and the nurse took my vitals. She switched fingers on the heart rate monitor and after taking my blood pressure, started mumbling to herself and started to roll the bp cart out of the room. I asked if something was wrong and she said, " this darn machine is not working right, it says your heart rate is only 55 and your bp is only 115/55." I said, " no, nothing's wrong with you machine, that's where I've been at the last few months. A year ago my bp averaged 140/80 and resting heart rate of 70. That was before I switched to a wfpbd. I've been eating a can of black beans every day since." She said she never see's those kind of numbers in the cancer patients. She was so impressed she was going to look into a wfpbd when she got home that night. OH, and for the the first time in seven years, my stage four nueroendocrine pancreatic cancer has shown no new growth and no new tumors! With only half of a pancreas, my a1c went from 6.3 to 5.7 in six months. Try that on a keto diet, not going to happen. Reply Franklin Schwartz December 13, 2019 Why not both? Beans every day and an addiction to bicycle racing, and my resting HR is 43 Reply Eelke Aptroot December 13, 2019 What aren't beans good for? Reply Cunninghams Law December 13, 2019 my hb at rest = 130. Been that way for years. Reply Plantbased Outdoors December 13, 2019 Been eating beans every night with dinner for 9 years! You plugged up keto folks can keep drinking your tub of Metamucil everyday. I'll stick with my beans. Reply Trace Absence December 13, 2019 My heart beat is around 100/second, sometimes 120. It’s been like that all my life. I’m 55 and not dead yet. Reply NutritionFacts.org December 13, 2019 Get the preface for Dr. Greger's brand-new book, How Not to Diet, by subscribing to his free newsletter at: https://bit.ly/NF_newsletter . -NF Team Reply Rabbit Food Fitness December 13, 2019 This is such an interesting video! I knew about the effect of exercise on a person's body but not the effect of beans! Fascinating! Reply Symbiotic Vegan December 13, 2019 Who else measured their heart rate after watching this video? Mine was 66! What was yours?!?! Reply Mark Coulter December 13, 2019 Careful with the canned beans, they are loaded with sodium. Better to pressure cook the dry beans…also cheaper. Reply TB1M1 December 13, 2019 Possibly the magnesium, b6 and potassium effect combined with low glycemic index (lots of insoluble fibre). Reply David Schmidt December 13, 2019 Mine is down from 85 to an average of 60 bpm since going healthy, whole food plant based. BP is down from 140/85 to 113/70. A healthy diet has made the most difference, but now I'm adding more exercise to get even more healthy. All of this was done with no medications, of course! Reply CarbedUp Kayla December 13, 2019 My resting heart rate is 99 on a regular basis. I eat plant based and I’m very active. My BP is usually 114/78. Reply Lloyd Christmas December 13, 2019 Love it. Reply Lynn W December 13, 2019 That's really helpful, "Pulses for your pulse". Understanding the rationale for eating something helps a lot. Thank you! Reply Anna D.L December 13, 2019 I'll take both the exercise and the beans. Now to find enough time to do the kind of exercise that I really want to do. Reply Beatnik Bandit Racing December 13, 2019 I get it Reply Julianna Aasan December 13, 2019 Love these videos !! Reply Anna LA December 13, 2019 I swear my grandad’s habit of eating beans with lunch and dinner every day offset his smoking. He lives to 84, which isn’t bad for someone born in 1905 Reply sab0nes December 13, 2019 I'm 44 I've had a high resting heart rate for several years. Plus I'm diabetic. I'm doing something about this today. I can't stand the texture of beans but im wondering if I can make oil free hummus and dip veggies in it instead. Im also going to have to eat vegan Reply Andrew G December 13, 2019 I have been on wfpbd for about 2 years. My blood pressure was 160/95. Now it's consistently around 117/72. My heart rate was 78. Now it's 50! "How Not to Die " gave me a new lease on life.I eat beans everyday! Reply Sandra Heaton December 13, 2019 Ultimately, it's genetic. I exercise daily, eat beans every day (within the context of a low-sodium WFPB diet), and still have high blood pressure and high resting heart rate…in fact, higher than most of my (meat & junk-food eating, couch-potato) friends. Reply gRetax G0D December 13, 2019 Whay about eating beans while workingout :p Reply TheAltruismActivist December 13, 2019 Do both! Exercise AND nutrition (and sufficient sleep/rest and stress management/reduction and fulfilling relationships/occupation and etcetera) 🙂 Reply Nick Morphew December 13, 2019 As I eat a bowl of oatmeal and lentils for breakfast Reply Jerry Narrows December 13, 2019 Am I the only one who toots like a chimney when I eat beans every day? Reply Richard Bailey December 13, 2019 So, moringa video? Yes? Reply vaughn December 13, 2019 Heart rates fluctuate throughout the day Doc. During the day around 3 pm I can be in the 90's at night when the body starts to relax I can be in the 60's to low 70's. After watching this video and stressing heart rate goes up also. Anyhow I exercise and eat beans often beans are very healthy. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
