Hacking Chipotle

I picked up a Chipotle menu that had nutrition info on the back so, I figured I’d share a few fun facts.

  • Get a bowl! The tortilla wrapping for a burrito is 300 cal. Three tacos is 210.
  • Easy on the cheese + sour crème. 2 oz of sour crème is 115 cal, 1 oz of cheese is 100.
  • NO CHIPS. 4 oz of chips is 570 cal.
  • Water or at worst a diet drink. 32 oz of soda is approx. 400 cal

Do the math. If you get a burrito with chips and drink you get 1270 extra calories.

If you get a bowl with no chips and a water you save 1270 calories!

A burrito bowl with:

Brown Rice 200 cal

Carnitas         210 cal

Sour crème 115 cal

Cheese         100 cal

Guac             200 cal

Totals up to 835 cal.

 

Add the flour tortilla, chips and soda and jump to a whopping 2005 cal. Ouch.

Great “Diet” Info

I think Mercola.com has some of the most honest info on the internet. I know other may disagree but Dr Mercola is trying to fight the big food companies every day. I have no problem with him selling supplements while he does it but, that’s just me. Either way, read this
