WHAT IS THE KETOGENIC DIET?
The ketogenic diet (often called keto) is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that shares similarities to paleo, Whole30, and Atkins. It involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake, and replacing it with fat. When your body switches to burning fat for its primary fuel source, that’s when you hit ketosis.
While on the Keto diet you’re supposed to get at least 70 percent of your calories from fat, 15 to 25 percent from protein, and 10 percent from carbohydrates. You’re supposed to avoid all grains, legumes, root vegetables, fruit, (except berries) and sugar.

– This chili recipe is thick and hearty. If you prefer a chili that is not quite as thick, simply add a little water until it reaches the desired thickness.
– To thicken keto chili, you can bring it to a boil, turn down the heat, and simmer it with the lid off. As it simmers, the liquid begins to evaporate, which thickens the chili. Make sure you stir it occasionally.
– Store bought chili seasoning can be used for this recipe if preferred. Just swap out the spices for chili sesaoning. (make sure it’s gluten free) Taco seasoning also works well if needed.
– You can skip the sausage in this recipe and use just ground beef or ground turkey if desired. You can also use regular sausage if you don’t like it spicy.
– Add a little water before reheating this chili. If you like it thick just add a small amount. If you like it runny… add a bit more.
