|Lumen is the world’s first hand-held, portable device to accurately measure metabolism. Once available only to top athletes, in hospitals and clinics, metabolic testing is now available to everyone. Lumen uses a CO2 sensor and flow meter to determine the CO2 concentration in a single breath. This indicates the type of fuel your body is using to produce energy. Shop and use code “4starendurance25” to get $25 off a Lumen at https://www.lumen.me?fid=1574||LUMEN LINK|
|BioSense is a clinical-grade breath ketone monitor in a consumer-friendly design that is HSA/FSA eligible. Biosense ketone test results are reported in units called ACEs – a unit that translates parts per million (ppm) of breath acetone into a blood ketone equivalent. This Ketone Score is a summary of how long and how deeply you’ve been in ketosis on any given day. This is important because research suggests that a daily Ketone Score of 120 is associated with a fat loss rate of about 0.5 pounds/week. Follow our link to receive a $20 discount when you join the 4 STAR CLUB and use this device alongside our 4 STAR ENDURANCE metabolic efficiency workouts and private coaching to train (and eat!) smarter!||BioSense LINK|
