I have a low heart rate but i'm overweight? A low heart rate is better than a high heart rate right?

In brief: Not necessarily

It depends on how low the heart rate is and whether the heart rhythm is normal or abnormal.
A high resting heart rate is more indicative of heart disease or other types of medical problems than a low resting heart rate so long as the low heart rate is not too low.
