I first heard about this product a few years ago, but declined to participate in the initial trial because I was a wuss. After hearing about the power of the platform, I'm regretting that choice. Bur it's never too late to start getting healthy!

Pros:

This is one of the coolest ideas I've seen in a long time, and coming from a team who knows their way around the space.

Cons:

I'll miss my pizza, but now at least I'll know when it's to enjoy it!

Thanks Jon, we look forward to having you as part of the Lumen Community. FYI, You don't need to say goodbye to Pizza, it's just about knowing when is the right time to have it according to your body and goals.

Very amazing. Can two people use one device? Can it also measure blood alcohol?

@rmagrino Thanks Robert. Yes, two people can use the same device, but for Lumen to give you the best insights about the food you eat and your body we recommend getting one per person, so you have the option to carry it around. It cannot measure blood alcohol at this time.

@dror_ceder thanks. Will the app be a subscription, and what monthly cost.
My partner and I have been loosely following a Keto diet but have avoided the analytics of tracking macros and using ketone strips due to price and inconvenience. It looks like this will be a major step up in helping us make informed food choices without the annoyances of other products/methods. Congrats on an amazing launch, Lumen team. Can't wait to get ours!

@kindra_at_rf Thanks Kindra! Can't wait to have you experience Lumen, I'm sure you will enjoy it. You will be able to see if exactly what's going on with your body and if you are burning fat. Take a look at the video of Molly Maloof MD on the Lumen page, she is an inspiring person and exactly about that.

Interesting concept. I’m not at all knowledgable about how the metabolism works etc. But what’s the science behind you breathing and your metabolism!
