Things to Watch For
Make sure to stay away from taco shells when at Chipotle. They add up to 13 net carb grams. (1) It gets even worse if you go for the burrito wrap. Each wrap adds up to 50 grams of carbohydrates. (1) Also, stay clear from tortilla chips, which have 65g carbs. (5) Beans and rice should also not be involved in your Keto diet. Because of the carb overload, you will not be able to maintain. White rice is 39g carbs, while brown rice is 34g carbs. (2) Beans are not as bad, but black beans are 15g carbs, and 13g carbs is in a portion of Chipotle’s pinto beans. (2) Roasted Chili-Corn Salsa is not a product of a Keto diet either. It has 13g carbs in every Chipotle meal. (5)
Lastly, you should make sure to limit your sugary drinks. Sodas are out-of-bounds, but you could try some water, seltzer water, and ice tea that is unsweetened. If you stay away from these foods, you can keep your carb limit under 50g per day by going to Chipotle for a meal. So, go online to order or walk into your nearest Chipotle, and enjoy your Keto experience. You can even get your food delivered to the comfort of your home.
