Chipotles, a Mexican fast food casual restaurant now has a handful of locations throughout Toronto. You line up and select the perfect combination for your burrito, bowl, taco or salad. Looks so healthy, but beware looks are deceiving!

A typical burrito with chicken, white rice, beans, guacamole, cheese, sour cream and vegetables contains close to 1200 calories and over 50 gm of fat – WOW!  That’s over ¾ of your daily intake.  It’s the same as devouring 11 steak tacos in fat from Taco Bell.

The problem is the amount of carbs you’re taking in.  The tortilla alone has 300 calories with 9 gm of fat. Lose this burrito and instead choose the burrito bowl, which removes the tortilla and select chicken, brown rice, beans, veggies, tomato salsa and cheese which saves half the calories and fat.
