2 Big Macs have less fat than 1 Chipotle burrito!

For some reason out in California there's these Fresh Burrito/Taco joints and people think that they are healthier for you. Ummm.. no.

Refried beans has lots of fat.
Tortillas even when not fried have lard in them.
Whatever meat you pick isn't going to be all that healthy either.
Sour Cream and Guacamole.. fuhgettaboudit!

I did not however think that it was as bad as this...

2 Big Macs have less fat than 1 Chipotle burrito!


FourFour has a killer post today exposing that a vegetarian Chipotle Burrito has 52 grams of fat and 1168 calories!! (just the veggie basics: beans, rice, cheese, guac, salsa, sour cream, and lettuce - not even any meat!) scroll down to see the details and calculator they used. that is so fucked up! Chipotle is part of the McDonalds corp, notorious for putting tons of bad stuff in their food to make it more addictive. Looks like they're doing the same at Chipotle, but that chain seems to be flying under the radar, for now. we hope the word gets around - 52 grams of fat and 1168 calories (and we usually get some meat in ours) is just not right. a Big Mac has only 21.5 grams of fat and 485 calories in comparison. as much as it pains us, so long Chipotle! we'll never go back.

Chipotle burritos are so fucking expensive and not worth it.
