Please note: this isn't the full mix and if you're getting the regular flavored mix, you don't need to get this.
The Base Powder (Just the Minerals and Vitamins) is mainly for international customers who want to save on shipping - it's everything but the protein (which is the #1 ingredient by weight and volume in Keto Chow). We have some additional details and info about the Base Powder on this page. When you mix it with the appropriate amount of protein powder you will end up with 21 meals worth of Keto Chow. Works great with
- Dymatize Elite 100% Whey (this is what was used in Keto Chow 1.9)
- Dymatize ISO100
- Optimum Nutrition Gold
- MyProtein Impact Whey (among others, most of their offerings are super low in carbs)
- Egg White Protein Powder
- And if you don't like Whey protein, there are a myriad of ones available that use casein, beef, soy, rice, and other protein sources! Just look for one with 2g of (non-fiber or "net") carbs per 28g or so of protein.
What is “Keto”?
If carbohydrates are available, your body will burn that first. If carbs are not available, your body will burn fat & your fat stores! “Keto” (scientifically known as “Nutritional Ketosis” but usually referred to as just “keto” or a “ketogenic diet”) involves restricting your diet to moderate protein, very low carbohydrates and high fat. It’s similar to the the Atkins diet, but with more solid science. When you are consuming enough protein to keep muscles happy, restricting carbohydrates as low as possible and making up the rest of your calories in fat, your body switches into a fat burning mode. Your liver will begin converting fats into energy molecules known technically as “ketone bodies” – which is where the name of the diet comes from. People end up with MORE energy and vitality on a ketogenic diet. Muscle cells are finally gaining energy instead of all the fuel getting stored away in fat cells because of insulin, specifically insulin resistance.
I mix it with collagen powder because dairy makes my face break out. Sweeten with Stevia or monkfruit, add flavoring extracts, and it's as good as the pre-mixed version.
If it were me I would to take that salty part and put it in my daily water to delute it heavily and sip away.
I am so happy to have this option to get the nutrition benefits of Keto Chow, without the dairy that upsets my system. I use the egg protein and add the base powder and whatever flavoring sounds good that day. Great option, thanks!
