Gutload give a bit of a nutritional boost that the dusting alone can't. You know all of those chicken commercials that are fed "all grain" or something that is supposed to be really great? It's kind of the same for crickets. I feed mine "gutload" for their main diet. It's not expensive to make, and they eat so little it doesn't cost a lot. The crickets grow healthier. Also, if they aren't fed properly, your cham is basically eating shells covered in dust. Some extra veggies right before feeding to your cham is good. It makes them have more water in them, and also vitamins. Dark leafy greens like collards or mustard greens are good for this.
