Does your order pass the “Chipotle” test?

Call it a carny trick, but I can tell whether you need to lose weight just by looking at your standard Chipotle order.

I know, I know – it sounds crazy, but I’ve spent a lot of time at Chipotle, and frankly I’ve never been wrong.

Okay maybe I was wrong once, but the guy was a genetic freak who could eat whatever he wanted and stay thin, not like the rest of us – but other than that one time, I’ve never been wrong.

Actually what’s crazy is I can tell whether you need to lose weight based solely on the first ingredient you order.

Let’s pretend you just got up to the Chipotle counter:

Would you like a salad or burrito?

Burrito.

FAIL.

Would you like chicken, steak, or sofritas (tofu)?

Sofritas

FAIL.

Would you like cheese, sour cream, or guacamole?

Sour cream, cheese, and no guacamole.

TRIPLE FAIL!!!

I get it, I get it, you like tortillas, sour cream, and cheese – who doesn’t?

But getting and staying lean isn’t about what you like to eat any more than getting rich is about what you like to spend money on – it just doesn’t matter.

All that matters is eating foods most of the time that are healthy for you.

But before you can eat foods that are healthy for you, you have to know which foods are healthy for you!!

Let’s take the Chipotle options as an example.

Burrito = FAIL.

Salad or Bowl = PASS

Starch

Brown Rice = FAIL.
