Most likely not: Exercise and healthy eating will lower your heart rate and cause weight loss. If you are having symptoms, however, of a low heart rate - dizziness, passing out, low energy, fuzzy thinking, then you need to get that checked out.

Heart rate 48: May be normal or your heart rate monitor is not accurate. Check by feeling pulse at wrist. Count for 60 sec exactly.
