::: LEVL Home Device :::
What’s my ketone level? Am I retaining water? Have I lost muscle? Or am I actually burning fat?
When it comes to measuring your own physiology and fat-burning capacity (from the comfort of your own home), these are many of the burning questions that might be at the back of your mind.
To measure fat burning and ketone production, I have a brand new technology called a LEVL now sitting on my desk. You just breathe into it once, and within about 30 seconds you know your ketone level, your fat burning status, how many freakin’ POUNDS of fat you can burn per week… everything!
If you want to try LEVL for yourself, just go to LEVLnow.com and enter code KION for $25 off your LEVL. It’s that easy.
AND, when you purchase a LEVL Home or LEVL Pro from now until the end of 2017, you’ll also receive $75 in product from my brand new website “Kion” absolutely free!
Just go to LEVLnow.com for more information on the LEVL Home and Pro models, and remember to use code KION for $25 off your LEVL AND $75 in FREE Kion products…
Check out my video to see the LEVL device in action!
