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). When you mix it with the appropriate amount of Protein powder you will end up with 1 week's worth (21 meals) 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)
- And if you don't like Whey protein, there are a myriad of ones available that use egg white protein, 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.
Keto Chow is perfect for ketogenic/keto/low carb diets, or people who just want to lose weight (even if you're not doing keto). It tastes great and can be easily tailored to your caloric requirements just by adding more or less heavy cream or oil. Comes in a variety of flavors. I have a great write up on the Basics of Nutritional Ketosis – What is Keto, how to do it, how to succeed.
