You Can Dukan Fast Food: Chipotle!

Can you be on the Dukan Diet and eat at Fast Food places? Yes you can! We all know life is unpredictable and to be able to stick to a diet on busy days is quite difficult, unless you are super organized. I am not! so more than once I have found myself going late to somewhere, starving and with no "dukan diet approved" food on hand. So the inevitable fast food place lunch or dinner happens, more often that I would like to admit. However, the fact that I eat at fast food places have not stopped me from losing 55 lbs with this diet - How? well you just have to make the right choices.

I thought that it would be nice to do a series of posts about what those choices are. I will highlight one restaurant at a time and will let you know what to eat at that restaurant so you can continue on your way to losing weight.

Today I will tell you what to eat at Chipotle, my favorite fast food place so far! I truly love this place. Not only they have good fresh food, but I like the service and experience. I do enjoy being able to choose what goes inside your plate vs. having a standard plate serve to you.

The safe choice at Chipotle is the Salad Bowl. It is delicious and you can do it without the carbohydrates. When it is your turn on the queue all you need to order is a salad bowl, no rice, no beans and no salad dressing. You can have everything else! Chipotle has a nice calculator on their website in where you can see the nutritional facts of your choices.

Here is what I normally choose:
  • Salad Bowl - lettuce
  • Carnitas
  • Tomato salad
  • Mild Salsa
  • Sour Cream
  • Cheese
This plate is huge and only has 450 calories, 12 g carbs (from vegetables not grains) and an amazing 40 g of protein!

So next time you are out and hungry and want to eat out, do not hesitate, get your salad at Chipotle and be guilt free!
