BACKGROUND Heart rate recovery (HRR) is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD) and mortality, but whether it is modifiable and can improve with weight loss is unclear. We sought to determine the effects of weight loss on HRR and its association with traditional CVD risk markers. METHODS Heart rate recovery (defined as the decrease in heart rate from peak heart rate to that measured 1 minute after a standardized graded treadmill test) and a range of established… CONTINUE READING
