Could losing weight a few lbs a week and low resting heart rate 40 be signs of danger? I started to eat vegan style and exercise moderately recently.

1 doctor agrees

In brief: 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.
