Lumen, the pocket-sized device that measures your metabolism to help you achieve your health and fitness goals, has released its latest update. After its iOS app got a built-in food history and macro tracker earlier this year, Lumen has launched a new iPhone tool to more easily track your diet and see its impact on your metabolism in real time.
Lumen’s integrated food and macro tracking system first arrived in March, then got a sweet update in May. As a reminder, this allowed users to:
- Learn which foods are good for your body – How specific ingredients affect metabolism in real time
- Know when and what to eat – Measure the effect of each breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack
- Focus on the quality of foods, not the calories – log and track the nutritional value and macronutrients of each food (amounts of fats, carbohydrates and proteins)
- Track Foods That Fit Your Lifestyle – See how certain foods affect your exercise, sleep, and fasting habits
- Keep track of any food in the grocery store – Scan food labels and barcodes to record specific meals and ingredients
- It integrates with other platforms you use – Import your data from loggers such as MyFitnessPal
As seen in the image above, the new Macro Tool makes it easier than ever to get a personalized macro plan for the day, then track and see at a glance how you’re doing and how it affects your metabolism.
And with Lumen, you can choose between a very simple carb-only tracker or an all-food tracker. Here’s what it looks like:
What is Lumen?
Whether you want to lose or maintain weight, build muscle, improve endurance, or improve athletic performance, understanding how exercise, nutrition, and metabolism relate is a huge advantage. Until Lumen’s launch in 2020, testing to see if you were burning carbs or fat was a relatively expensive process done in clinics and hospitals with large machines.
Lumen puts powerful metabolic analysis in your pocket with tight Apple Health integration. This gives you the personal information you need (in the moment) on how your body uses energy, what you need to eat to achieve your specific goals like a macronutrient plan, and more.
Over the past few years I’ve been using Lumen, and I’ve done two detailed reviews:
Lumen works with a pocket-sized breathalyzer to test your metabolism and a sharp iOS app. Lumen runs $299 for a 12-month subscription that includes the device. There’s also a 6-month course for $249 and an 18-month option for $349.
