That means Levels is able to help you make a meal decision right in the moment and immediately give you feedback about your body's response to that food.

Power Quotes From The Show


Developing Your Metabolic Fitness

"We're developing a 28-day program which gives people a metabolic awareness and guides them along the process of closing the loop between the actions they're taking and the reactions their body is experiencing using the Continuous Glucose Monitor. This experience is intended to connect us with our own metabolisms and develop that metabolic awareness intuition to point us in the right direction for metabolic fitness. Just like physical fitness, in order for us to become metabolically healthy, we have to think of it in the same way where we're putting in focus, repetition, and effort to achieve our goals." - Josh Clemente



Real-Time Diet Advice

"We have had data in our understanding of metabolism for a long time but the problem is it's been population set data. The data is just averaged and all of the information and advice we get is based on the average of a group of people who were studied at some point in the distant future or past. That data doesn't have any connection to you. Now, when you wear your Levels CGM device and you eat a meal, you can see your body telling you something; it's almost like an emotional experience." - Josh Clemente

Why Setbacks Are Meaningful Life Lessons


"It's easy when you're younger to just assume that you know it all or life is going well so you must have it figured out but it takes a series of setbacks to really be able to reflect on life in a meaningful way. With that being said, setbacks are the most important thing in life because they're lessons learned. Over time and through experience, we start to develop wisdom and context for different things. To me, that is the spiritual component in the wellness journey." - Josh Clemente

OrganifiAre you getting the quality nutrition your body needs?

You don’t need to hire a nutritionist, though. You don’t need to live at the gym, either. In fact, all you really need is about 3 minutes a day… and Organifi will do the rest.
