Manage your weight, sleep and athletic performance by training your metabolism to use fat and carbs more efficiently.
…you’ll learn about the critical role metabolism plays in your body’s energy and performance. Important new science findings about human metabolic health shows how you can change your metabolism. To help you make these changes, this episode gives you practical tips and tools for measuring your metabolism and ways to manage it effectively.
Guest Michal Mor, Ph.D., co-founded Lumen with her twin sister, Merav Mor, Ph.D., and three long-time entrepreneur friends nearly a decade ago. As Chief of Metabolic Health & Science, Michal’s background includes degree studies in Medical Laboratory Sciences and Physiology with an emphasis on cardiac arrhythmia.
The Lumen founders set out to close the gap of what existed in the science and something people could actually use to manage their metabolic health.
Both Michal and her twin, Merav, were multiple-year Ironman participants. Athletic performance—and how to improve it—influenced their work with metabolism. Four years of research and development plus more years of validation studies and beta test users went into developing Lumen.
Lumen is a hand-held device that accurately measures your metabolism through the breath. It uses a CO2 sensor and flow meter to measure the CO2 concentration in your breath, indicating if your body is in carb or fat burn.
“So, this ability to shift between them, it’s not only good for athletic performance it’s also improving our quality of life,” Michal says. “It enables us to enjoy life to our fullest potential. It’s about longevity. It’s about being able to achieve our goals, not having those mood swings. This is so much more than improving athletic performance.”
Lumen has accumulated a metabolic measurement database with over 20m measurements. These insights have shown how lifestyle habits affect metabolism and the body more than previously thought possible. In turn, the Lumen team educates, guides and gives people real-life tools so they can become more metabolically flexible.
