Let us explain how GoBe3 tracks calories.
GoBe3 does not directly track what you eat, rather it tracks the energy consumed by your body.
When your body absorbs energy, either from the food that you eat or from internal resources, the glucose level in your blood rises. To absorb glucose the cells need to release water. GoBe3 analyzes fluid moving in and out of the cells. Then we apply our patented FLOW Technology advanced algorithm to this information in order to analyze this data and calculate calorie intake.
This explains why you may be fasting for three days in a row and GoBe3 would still show energy consumption, for example.
GoBe registers calorie intake at the time when calories are absorbed by the body, at the stage where nutrients are delivered into the blood.
Different stages of the digestion process take different time:
1-2 hours - the process of chewing and swallowing;
3-4 hours - the handling of food by digestive fluids;
4-8 hours - digestion process;
5-9 hours, and sometimes more than 24 hours - food is delivered to the suction area and enters the blood.
Some of these processes occur simultaneously, so the first portion of digested food may enter the blood after 15-30 minutes, and the main part of the meal may be absorbed only after 3-4 hours, and the absorption period can be superimposed on the next meal. Depending on the composition of the meal, 90%% of the food can appear in the blood after 1 hour (sweets, sugar) and after 9-10 hours (complex dishes with meat and side dishes).
It is normal if you see a night intake of calories, because digestion may continue and it may be slower than it is in the day, since all processes in the body slow down at night. So even if your last meal was, let's say at 6 pm last night, the digestion and absorption process may continue even at 6-7 am next morning.
