Check Your Pulse


Even a slightly elevated heart rate may increase your risk of diabetes. In a 20-year Japanese study, people with resting heart rates above 80 beats per minute (bpm) were almost five times more likely to develop the disease.

If your resting heart rate is over 80 bpm, lower it with 3 days of interval training a week.
