|All my favorite food groups wrapped in carbs.|
But there were two reasons we went to the 'Rec' (possibly more if you had other priorities in life): spring break and Chipotle (some might add: stress relief, Guys Pizza, drinking, and 'a healthy lifestyle' but we will have none of that in this post).
Well my avid readers, before you feel that you can only eat Chipotle after a hot yoga class and 3 days of solid fasting with four rounds of P90x this fabulous little website: Chipotle Fan allows you to add up your caliente Calories. Killer.
As you can see I like the Burrito Bol: double fajita veg, chicken, tomato/green salsa, lettuce, sour cream and guacamole (on the side because I usually want more the next day).
Wow. That's not too bad. This is how it works in a daily meal plan. By figuring this out, I can have Chipotle or something else fabulous.
I will probably like 1500 something Calories. I have a desk job (awesome telephonic nutrition counseling) but I get up frequently to harass coworkers, print literature for my clients, and at times drive my supervisors nuts (or at least a make a great effort to). I figured out my Basal Metabolic Rate which would be the number of Calories I need to exist (breathe, cells to do their thing, blood flow, thoughts albeit few). I use that magical number and combine it with however many Calories I expend during a workout (which is why I love my Polar Watch and highly recommend something like it). If I want to lose weight I move more and what not. You get the picture.
Therefore, I will probably eat two breakfasts (coffee with milk and egg whites, then oatmeal with walnuts when I get to work); lunch will consist of some kind of protein (two cheese sticks) and some kind of pasta deal with vegetables, and an afternoon snack of grapes. This is roughly 850-900 Calories leaving me room for Chipotle goodness since I have a 3 mile tempo run.
In Chipotle we trust.
