It's a cool Keto Chow sticker. Made out of vinyl. It's 3 inches wide and 2 inches tall.
Why does it cost so much? The cart is set up to offer them for free if your order is over $100, I didn't want them to mess with the shipping calculations so I made them free shipping but set the price high enough to cover shipping just in case someone decided to order a whole bunch =)
Been using Keto Chow with HWC. Love it!
I want to start by saying that I dont like protein shakes or meal replacement shakes, because they are always gritty, chalky, or just gross. I ordered the sample packs thinking that, at least I wouldnt be out much money and maybe my husband would like it. Jokes on me, I loved it. Not gritty, not chalky, no weird after tastes. Sadly, my husband loves it too, so I have to share.
Love love love Keto Chow!!! Tastes delish and so satisfying!!
I've hesitated to write a review until I was satisfied with the results. As I write this, it is the start of week 6.
A background, my fiancé is a Type 2 Diabetic, starting weight was 438 pounds. His doctor had strongly advised against keto based diet plans, but after trying to various suggestions made by his doctor and nutritionist for the past two years to no avail, I decided I would try this first. We would monitor my glucose levels (I started at 296 pounds, but am not diabetic), to get an idea of how drastically it might affect his glucose levels. After a lot of conversation, we decided we’d both try it.
The first two days were absolute hell. Craving foods that we don’t even normally eat, we’ve not eaten rice for years but it was all I could think of. Fried chicken, same thing.
The shakes were filling, surprisingly. He is a considerably large man who works physically in the 90° + heat all day. He is always needing snacks to keep his energy level going. It was surprising to us both that the shakes would carry him through to the next meal without any hunger. Cravings, yes. But actual hunger, no.
No one warned about the bathroom living around day 4 through day 5, but we both wished we’d started on a Wednesday instead of a Monday. That was not a pleasant surprise.
We’ve “cheated” twice, not bad or full blown cheats, but certainly over the carb count. We use an app (Carb Manager) to calculate where we are through the day, what we can snack on or cheat with. Fridays we’ve rewarded our week by skipping the dinner shake and having a steak with broccoli. We snack on ½ cup of dill pickles each day, 2 cheese sticks, and 1 can of Vienna sausages. I mention these because I am certain we would be fairing much better on our success if we’d have not had these snacks and cheats.
He drinks one or more gallons of water a day. I average 2 quarts.
We are not exercising, simply our typical activities.
As we begin our 6th week, he has lost 30 pou...
Such an easy breakfast. I prep it before bed and reblend in the morning. I am mixing the chocolate and banana flavors in my drink and it’s awesome.

Keto Chow is complete nutrition for Nutritional Ketosis. It's a drink mix that quickly and easily makes a complete keto meal. It's not meant to replace your bacon and steak.
Rather, it's targeted to replace the mundane meals; running to a meeting, breakfast in the car, stuck in class, etc...
By design, a serving of Keto Chow provides 1/3 of your daily needs of electrolytes, vitamins, protein and more. The aim is that you could replace all your meals without ill effect if you are so inclined, but most users replace 1-2 meals a day and have a fantastic keto meal with family or friends for the 3rd. It's also quite tasty with a range of great flavors.
You combine the powdered mix with your own personal amount of heavy cream (and water) to get the calories you want, anywhere from 800 calories a day, up to 5000 calories. Many liken the taste and texture to melted ice cream or a milkshake. The full-flavored mixture of Keto Chow does contain whey protein and artificial sweeteners; if those are a concern for you there's also a "Base Powder" option that has the electrolytes and vitamins but not the flavor/protein/sweetener. You can mix our base powder with a protein powder and sweetener of your choice. Want easy, complete nutrition give Keto Chow a try! People love Keto Chow over on Reddit! (which is saying a lot =) Check out This review, or this one, or this review. You can also search Reddit for "Keto Chow" or "KetoChow" - both sorted so the newest posts are always at the top.
How to prepare Keto Chow (videos and more!)
Check out "Basics of Nutritional Ketosis – What is Keto, how to do it, how to succeed" for some great information about what Keto is and how to do it.
Information on the above warning: Keto Chow and Heavy Metal Exposure (Proposition 65 warning)The short version: The Keto Chow shakes have an almost immeasurable amount of lead (if a product has plants in it - like spices for flavor - the plants pick up traces of lead) - but that level is over the line that California has decided could potentially cause birth defects... if you consume 1000x the amount that requires a warning. So a warning to California residents is required by law (as you see above).
Longer version: For any unaware, California has a fun citizen's initiative commonly referred to as "Proposition 65" or "Prop 65" - it's the reason many consumer products have a warning that "this product contains chemical known to cause cancer in California" (or similar) which is generally followed by everyone thinking "good thing I'm not in California!" I'll not get into the validity of the "No Significant Risk Levels" and "Maximum Allowable Dose Levels" established as part of Prop 65, they are what they are, and if a company sells something to a resident of California, a California resident (usually a lawyer) has the ability to sue if there is not a warning and the product contains levels of heavy metals or other contaminants higher than the levels established. I can say that the heavy metal levels in Proposition 65 are low enough that coffee shops have had to post warnings and Disneyland has warnings in their picnic area. Keto Chow was served a notice that "Safe Products for Californians" intends to sue Keto Chow for not having warnings that Keto Chow contains heavy metals, specifically lead. The tactic being that many of the levels defined by Proposition 65 are so absurdly low that quite literally EVERYTHING has enough lead to qualify for needing a warning. Also, since Keto Chow contains protein, and the 'cool' thing to do these days is use plant protein which tends to be from China and contains a lot of heavy metals, logically Keto Chow will contain heavy metals (like Soylent™ does). The thing is: we don't use plant protein, instead we only use protein created by sustainable mobile bioreactors (ruminants); in fact, very few of the ingredients come from plants and the animals don't absorb heavy metals. Due to the lawsuit, we paid for an independent lab to test for heavy metals in Keto Chow, the complaint was only for "Lead and Lead Compounds" but we went ahead and had Arsenic, Cadmium, Lead, and Mercury tested. The test has a minimum measurable level of 0.01 mg/kg of material, and each meal of Keto Chow is around 44-50g of powder. Here are the measured levels of heavy metals in Keto Chow, the serving size, and what your exposure is compared to the allowed levels with one caveat: the cadmium level is only established for inhalation, if you ingest it orally there is not established level. Lead is interesting, Proposition 65 establishes a "No Significant Risk Levels" for causing cancer set at 0.015 mg or 15 micrograms per day. Lead also has a "Maximum Allowable Dose Levels" (MADL) for causing reproductive harm of 0.0005 mg or 0.5 micrograms per day. The MADL is set by looking at the level that no observable effect occurs and dividing that by 1000. In other words, if a toxin causes an effect at 10 units, the MADL would be defined at 0.01 units; meaning that the dose where lead will cause reproductive harm is 0.5 mg or 500 micrograms per day. I guess it's surprising that many of the flavors of Keto Chow do NOT contain enough lead to require a warning label. Notably, the ones with the highest levels are those that contain spices or other plant-derived flavorings.
