Breathe into the LEVL device to see how much fat you’re burning

Since there’s no “one-size-fits-all” fitness regimen and every person’s body responds differently to physical activity, a company called LEVL has unveiled a new device that can tell each person exactly how much fat they’re burning after a particular activity — with just a breath.

The sensor technology was developed to give insight into the metabolic process. By measuring the amount of acetone in an individual’s breath, LEVL is able to tell whether a user is in a fat-burning state and then provide him or her with real-time information needed to modify diet and exercise.

When the body is burning fat for energy, in a state called ketosis, the body generates molecules called ketone bodies, one of which is acetone which can be detected in our breath.

LEVL’s is equipped with a nanosensor that measures the users’ acetone concentration and converts that measurement into fat burn. Users simply blow into the tabletop device and the sensor measures the concentration of acetone in that breath, providing an individual LEVL score.  The LEVL score appears on the device, and LEVL can and immediately connect this information to an  accompanying smartphone app to provide real-time. Users can then compare their LEVL score with their diet and exercise choices to adjust their routine to maximize fat loss.

Keep a lookout. The device will make its way to the market this year.
