Replay – #22 Levels: A Masterclass in Metabolic Health and Real-Time Optimization | Josh Clemente, Co-Founder

Josh Clemente is the Founder and President of Levels, a metabolic fitness company that helps people take control of their health using real-time data on their blood glucose levels. In this episode, Josh and I discuss how metabolism works, the importance of feedback loops, and how your blood glucose levels can shape everything from your energy levels to the quality of your sleep.


“The most important things that I do every day are to take walks after my meals and make sure that I sleep a full eight hours. Those two simple things, which require a lot of adjusting for your lifestyle, have an outsized impact over the years and decades as they compound.” – Josh Clemente
