HOW DO YOU PERSONALIZE WEIGHT LOSS?
Measuring breath acetone to monitor fat metabolism has many advantages including personalization of weight loss plans and patient motivation. Weekly breath acetone measurements help clinicians and patients learn what is working for that patient, often when the scale is not showing progress.
LEVL is the only FDA registered device to provide a prediction of an individual’s fat loss by measuring acetone in exhaled breath. Unlike urine and blood, the LEVL device measures low levels of ketones as the body shifts into a state of elevated fat metabolism making it useful tool for any prescribed diet.
The review Measuring Breath Acetone for Monitoring Fat Loss reveals the following key points:
- Maintaining a 2 ppm (parts per million) breath acetone concentration while on a calorie restriction diet should cause a fat loss rate of ½ lb per week.
- Stored fat is used to meet the body’s energy demands and help people achieve fat loss goals by being a byproduct of fat metabolism.
- Consuming carbohydrates an hour before exercise decreased fat burn during exercise and prevented the onset of post-exercise fat burn.
