The LEVL device measures low levels of ketones to predict patient fat loss and can be used with any prescribed weight loss program. Blood and urine tests were developed to identify ketoacidosis. These tests are therefore not sensitive to lower levels of ketones that are indicative of healthy fat loss. LEVL was designed specifically to accurately measure low levels of fat metabolism. Based on the scientific data, a measurement of 2.0 Parts Per Million (PPM) equates to 0.5 pounds of body fat burned per week (if this level is maintained throughout the week).* The examples below show sample data from a few common dietary regimens.
LOW CARB DIET
Carbohydrate intake between 50g to 75g per day with higher carb snacks on the weekends.
STANDARD AMERICAN DIET
Mixed macronutrient diet that includes processed foods and weekend indulgences.
LOW CALORIE DIET
Mixed macronutrient 500-calorie deficit diet that includes low fat foods, lean meat and whole grains.
Macronutrient mix of low carb (< 20g), high fat and moderate protein combined with intermittent fasting.
HIGHER NUMBERS ARE NOT ALWAYS BETTER.
Experiment with your nutrition, exercise and sleep duration to learn where you feel best.
*For measurements above 10.0ppm, the rate of fat loss is unknown per the scientific literature. People who have measurements above 10.0ppm are typically on a low carb, high fat diet, so they are burning a mixture of stored body fat and nutritional fat therefore the calculation will no longer be relevant. In the LEVL app, the KCAL/DAY and FAT LBS/DAY burned per day will not calculate for measurements above 10.0ppm. These are fictional users. Actual results may vary.
