This meal keeps calories in check and is packed with protein, fresh veggies, and flavor

I'm pretty good about bringing my lunch to work but from time to time I like to order out with my coworkers. Luckily, most fast food chains like Chipotle now have nutrition calculators available on their websites that help you figure out how many calories and fat are in a meal. So before ordering with the group, I always check Chipotle's online nutrition calculator to carefully craft my meal.

After learning the nutritional content of each item, I've found my go-to lunch:

Burrito bowl with chicken, fajita veggies, lettuce, tomato salsa, corn salsa, and guacamole. The total calorie count for this meal is 465-and I often can't finish the entire dish because it's so filling! I skip the beans, rice, sour cream, and cheese, which would add a whopping 510 calories for a grand total of 975! Plus, those extras would bring the saturated fat content to 17 grams compared to the four grams in my order. If you want to shake things up, check out another healthy Chipotle burrito bowl order here.My lunch is always delicious and I never feel the least bit deprived! Do you have a go-to lunch spot that lets you customize your meal? Please share in the comments below. I love Chipotle but would love more options!

Weight loss is 70% diet, 20% exercise and 10% getting enough sleep/relaxing. No amount of exercise will allow you to burn off a bad diet. -Trust cave diet - https://bit.ly/2TRvvR3

Since I turned 40 it has been increasing harder to lose weight. I have tried every diet, watch what I ate etc., nothing worked. One day my husband came home and told me about this system, I thought why not. Three months later I lost 34 pounds and 3 sizes. Now that I’m on the maintenance part of the system I lost a total of 38 pounds and now down 4 sizes…. This system works. It really had me change my eating habits. I have learned valuable nutritional information to ensure I keep the weight off and look great. Three months later I lost 34 pounds and 3 sizes, just following this system:http://leanbellybreakthrough1.club
