So you guys talk about diet? what bout this food

So I wouldnt say im a super fast food eater or anything, but im not really into home food all that much and its much easier to go out to eat, and when i do go out, i find myself eating at places like..

chipotle
quiznos
Some terriyaki place
some chinese place with mongolian beef/orange chicken
______________

Now i dont consider or compare these places to mcdonalds, wendys or burger king, but of course they are no ruth chris steakhouse..

So im wondering, after lifting, if i went to go eat at lets say CHIPOTLE, am i completely just filling myself up with useless stuff that im going to sh it out later

or what?

suggestions

check out chipotlefan.com for nutritional info... I just calculated my usual there and this is the outcome:
Total Fat 39g
Saturated Fat 12g
Cholesterol 136mg
Sodium 3349mg
Total Carbohydrate 146g
Dietary Fiber 13.5g
Sugars 9g
Protein 57g

Not the worst thing you can put in your body but definitely not healthy for you. Good source of protein but that's about it.


Typical Chicken Stirfry:
Nutritional Breakdown per serving (based on 3 servings and 4 TB oil for stir-frying): 451 calories (kcal), 21 g Total Fat (18 g Monounsaturated Fat), 57 g Protein, 5 g Carbohydrate, 137 mg Cholesterol, 818 mg Potassium, 424 mg Sodium, 1g Fiber

There are plenty of healthy chinese meals you can choose.

I eat lunch out almost every day... and it usually consists of salmon, chicken, or turkey along with some brown rice and vegetables. Tons of gourmet buffets around my office that have decently healthy selections. Days I don't do that, I usually get sushi. Not as healthy as cooking it yourself, but you can eat healthy while eating out.

Nothing wrong with having fast food once in awhile, moderation is important, but if you're serious about your health and achieving a particular fitness goal, sacrifices will have to be made.

If and when you do go out, if you're trying to stay healthy, just aim for the healthier options on the menu.

chipotle is king of sodium. i'm pretty sure all the meats have mass quantities of salt, along with the rice, salsas, & fajitas.

Americanized Mexican food in general is that way.

ive found that most food you get when you eat out has pretty high salt content to ensure it tastes good.

Of course the exception comes at places like Ruth Chris, etc., but I usually make sure I'm drinking tons of water when I eat out, even though I get the healthiest choice.

Water or no water, that kind of salt intake (which is way over the daily suggested amount for the average adult I believe) will only serve to increase your risk of heart disease and stroke. Glad I looked in this thread..I had no idea just how much salt was in their food.
