You have your LEVL device, now how do you interpret the results? While the goal for elevated fat metabolism is 2PPM, acetone concentrations in healthy individuals can range from roughly 1PPM to 100PPM. Below we break down the results into increments so you can better understand your state of ketosis.
Burning carbs and sugars for fuel
2.0 – 9.9 PPM
Your body has entered an elevated state of fat metabolism.
10.0 PPM and higher
High level of fat metabolism*
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.
