So it’s holiday madness time, which means a lot of seeing friends and family but it also means eating out a lot more.
This is the hardest thing to try and avoid unhealthy empty poop calories, my mother and I eat out almost 4 days a week and when I wanted to start this weight loss nonsense I had to sit behind my computer for hours just looking at what some of the most popular places we eat out at had to offer.
First off, cut the fast food shit, I don’t care if they have salad there, have you ever looked at the lettuce? It’s not even green! The greener your vegetables are the BETTER derrrrr. So now more iceberg shit you should have a base of spinich and maybe a splash of romaine or italian for it hold the honor called a salad.
Okay for sit down food times~~~
The easiest thing to do when dieting is custimizing your food. I always feel like a big asshole when I have to practically speak shakespherien to him for what I want in my meal. To make things simpler places where you start from the base and work you way up are the easiest way to go.
My favorite all time place to do this? CHIPOTLE HOW I LOVE THEE
This place is great for many many reasons, the food tastes great for one, but on top of it there food is organic which makes me a happy camper.
Now I am not saying everything at this place is healthy but you have the option of vegan and healthy. If your getting the classic chicken burrito with everything on it then your looking at a meal consistaning of 1,500 calories. It’s not even just what’s in teh burritosss but have you ever noticed the portion sizes of this place SHIT really the burritos are the size of my dog (His name is Chuy he is a lump of cuteness) but you should never EAT anything the size of a small dog, proportions are still important even when all you eat is rabbit food
Alright now I shall be breaking down Chipotle’s menu for you
Here is the ABSOLUTE SHIT LIST
Flour Tortilla - 290 calories (80 from fat EW), 9 grams of fat, 670 mg of sodium
Flour Taco Shell - 90 calores EACH (there are 3 of them derpface), 2.5 grams of fat EACH, 200 grams of sodium EACH
Cilantasomething-lime-rice(3 OZ)- 130 calores, 3 grams of fat, 150 mg of soduim
^ That dosn’t sound so bad right? Well always check your serving size thats ONLY 3 OUNCES that’s about a handful they at least triple that in your one burrito bowl.
Now this one almost made me shit my self
Tortillia Chips (4 OZ) - 570 CALORIES, 240 OF THAT FROM FAT, 27 GRAMS OF FAT AND 420 MG OF SODIUM. You know what the best part of that is? TRIPLE THAT!
Yeah that one bag of chips practically kicks your diet out the roof
Now if your actually following the diet you wouldn’t be eating any of these refine carbs am I right? If not get off WoW for 2 damn seconds and go re-read my rant about white carbs.
Now that’s not it for my shit list, even though yes the meat is indeed organic so all of you steak kings will rise up and try to tell me otherwise, but meat should be a NEVER all it does is add uneeded calories to your everyday diet and if you still order meat… well why the fuck are you dieting then?
Now I know I havn’t covered all the horrors of dairy but I am still putting them on my shit list
Sour Cream(2 OZ) - 120 calores (90 from fat), 10 grams of fat (and remember about there portion sizes, you practically triple all these calories I am saying)
Cheese(1 OZ)- 100 calores (80 from fat), 8.5 grams of fat
Vinaigrette dressing (2 oz)- 260 calores(220 from fat), 24.5 grams of fat, 700 mg of sodium
And you never thought that a vinaigrette dressing could do you no harm
So there you go, pretty much all the stuff people typically get
Now exactly what should you get at Chipotle?
Well the base should be a bowl or a salad (No dressing don’t even get it on the side so your not tempted)
NO rice (* apprantly the last time I went there they started offering brown rice, I have not heard much of it I am assuming it’s new for now I would avoid it you don’t want to pack to many carbs in one meal)
Black beans (Not pinto even though there realitivly the same in calores they are cooked and fried in bacon)
Ask for lots of peppers and onions you want those to be the base of your meal (Even though there swimming in oil that’s the price you pay for eating out.. really can’t a place just ever get my dry fucking veggies?)
All of the sauces are fine and suggest so you don’t have bland dish
and then GUACAMOLEEEE~ HOW I LOVE YOU
There you go so with all my powers combined I am 550 CALORIES
It seems high but you getting most of your calories from the beans and guac which are vegetables so it’s legit
Now I know it’s tempting to get those chips so you can have more texture to your food, what I do is bring a handful of my own organic multigrain chips from home to use saving you a lot of calories and sensless carbs.
Don’t ever feel bad about bringing in your own food to mix in with the stuff you get there.. I never had an issue before but if a food place is bitching about them stand your ground and tell them YOUR CALORIE CONTENT IS TO DAMN HIGH.
