KETOSIS FOR WEIGHT LOSS
Not every food or diet plan affects people the same way. While ice cream may significantly slow one individual’s fat burn or state of ketosis, another may be more affected by white rice. There are a lot of things affecting us every day that a single number on a scale can’t tell you, and it can get frustrating to switch things up, then “wait and see” only to discover a certain routine isn’t working. By measuring and tracking your daily fat-burn from the inside, you can begin to paint a picture of your body’s reaction to food and exercise in real time, long before outward signs of fat-loss become noticeable. This means that instead of repeatedly going back to the drawing board, you can begin to predict how changes in routine will affect fat loss.
Based on scientific research, a breath measurement of 2PPM or greater indicates an elevated state of fat metabolism that should correspond to a loss of at least ½ lb. of body fat per week (based on a calorie restricted diet).
