I tried to set up this recipe to be as readily available from a local supermarket and or health food store as possible. There are 9 total ingredients. The only ingredient that I found difficult to find locally is the whole powdered eggs. Strangely enough, most grocery stores carry powdered egg white, but not powdered whole eggs, so I ordered them through Wal Mart. With slight adjustments It is possible to fulfill 100% of the requirements without the powdered egg; however, contrary to popular opinion the cholesterol in eggs is a necessary nutrient for testosterone production. For extra insurance I gave the recipe a bit of extra Selenium and made sure that the Iron content didn’t go too high. These factors coupled with the high protein content should give you what you need to maintain or even gain muscle mass while losing fat. Please feel free to test it as you like and (good or bad) I certainly wouldn’t mind hearing about the results.
The nutrient profiles for most of the ingredients come from the USDA National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference or the Nutrition Search Engine at skipthepie.org.
The finished product has a pleasant chocolate flavor with a bit of an earthy finish due to the Oat Flour. I use a Magic Bullet cup to mix mine and it seems to work best with roughly a half a cup of the finished powder mixed with the water.
