Fats can be used to fuel muscle tissue, heart, etc. 19:47 Beta hydroxybutyrate and ketone bodies seem to be able to bypass some defects in mitochondrial function, the inability of mitochondria to generate fuel from sugars. 22:17 Acetone as measured by Levl is an indicator of your last 12 hours of fat metabolism. 24:31 The Levl sensor can mistake consumed alcohol for acetone. 25:27 Eight hours after drinking alcohol, you can experience alcoholic ketosis, reflected in acetone levels. 28:28 While in ketosis, endurance exercise will cause ketone levels to drop because you are using the ketones. 36:55 Bears use ketones for hibernation. Cows make ketone bodies and the ketone bodies flavor the milk. 40:52 Keto breath is mostly acetone. 42:18 Urine testing for acetone has too many variables, like water intake and frequency of urination. 43:33 Seven parts per million or higher of breath acetone would reflect a .5 mml of beta hydroxybutyrate, the definition of nutritional ketosis. 45:22 Measure acetone consistently first thing in the morning when there are fewer external variables. If that is not possible, measure right before dinner or at bedtime. 47:50 Supplemental niacin and aspirin seem to alter the breakdown of fat at the cell, so the fat cell does not dump fat into the bloodstream. 52:14 Ingested shorter chain fats can turn into ketone bodies more quickly than longer chain. 53:30 Levl partners with Heads Up Health, which tracks additional health variables, creating a body of data to be analyzed in a more holistic way.
