Weight Loss ≠ Fat Loss
Clinical studies have shown that overweight or obesity may be one of the main causes of many chronic diseases and some cancers. Overweight and obesity are defined by the World Health Organization as abnormal or excessive FAT accumulation that may damage health.
People usually tend to mix up weight loss and fat loss. Weight loss can be due to muscle and water losses but maintaining adequate muscle mass is crucial. Hence focus on fat loss, not weight loss.
If you are interested in knowing your fat metabolism, instead of BMI and scale measuring body weight, measuring breath ketone which is an irreversible final product of fat metabolism (ketosis) will be a candid choice.
Daily Measurement with KetoMetrics
A reliable measurement of ketosis (3-80ppm) can let you know your body's ketone status and assist your doctors and nutritionists to set up/adjust the optimal low-carbohydrate ketogenic diet therapy for you in time to achieve your healthy plan.
Measurement does not affect by diet!
Unlike conventional metal-oxide breath analyzers, KetoMetrics never confuses alcohol, coffee, breath mints, chewing gum, tobacco, toothpaste, garlic and green tea with ketones for flawless accuracy.
What is Ketosis?
Ketosis is a natural metabolic state of healthy people.
Under ketosis, the fat metabolism in liver is activated which converts body fat tissue and dietary fat into a kind of bioenergy called ketone body, and then burns the ketone body to obtain energy. As a result, the body begins to consume fats which not only helps to lose weight, but also improves the body's fat metabolism function to achieve lifespan.
Over the past two decades, clinical studies suggested that maintaining the state of “therapeutic ketosis” could effectively improve a series of chronic diseases such as obesity, epilepsy, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, etc. There are also many positive reports for other applications such as treatment of acne, cancer, cognitive impairment (brain degeneration), non-alcoholic fatty liver, rare metabolic diseases, etc.
What factors may affect ketosis?
Ketosis could be affected by the individual's gender, age, weight, physical fitness, body function, health status, nutrient absorption, stress, quality and length of sleep, etc.
