    Had to eat lunch at Don Pablos today with a client.
    They supposedly have tons of low carb foods, but couldn't find any on the 'new menu' that came out last week. So I got a taco salad with chicken.

    Dear god..

    Calories 1215

    Sodium 2530 mg
    Total Carbohydrates 104 g
    Dietary Fiber 22 g

    So much for the diet today. :wtc: 60 minutes of cardio tonight, instead of 30 :o

    EDIT: However, didn't mention that only ate about 80% of it. :hs:

    Well, a lot of the carbs seems to come from veggies since the fiber count is so high.

    Yes... it definitely wasn't unhealthy by any means.. just too much when I'm trying to watch and count every nutrient I eat to the mg. I simply made a poor choice.

    67 grams of fat :eek3:

    Go google "eating right at restaurants". There's a lot of tricks; I usually just stick to grilled chicken/fish and veggies, and tell them no butter AT ALL on the veggies or the meat.

    That's typically what I do.. usually just plain old chicken and broc, steak and broc, or fish and broc.. however, this is a mexican place and I couldn't talk the client out of it.

    honestly, I'm so stuck in the bulking mindset, all i saw was that I could eat 4/day and that it had 51g's of protein :o

    of course, for me, bulking mostly just means getting fat, so :dunno:

    Thats not THAT bad :dunno:

    22g of sat fat in one sitting might not be the best thing ever but I doubt it will have any effect on your diet in the long term.

    edit: sorry just realised that thats a fucking SALAD!

    i've basiclaly just been eating chicken lately :wtc: I went food shopping and basiclaly just bought odd ball stuff that I'lll need to cook with.

    But you can cook chicken so many different ways so its all good. :drool:

    edit: I do have a HUGE, amazing bean dip in the fridge with beans, salsa, guagamole, sour cream and cheese on top.

    sorry cutting people. Just go simmer some chicken breasts in soy sauce and vinegar or italian dressing & balsamic vinegar or something...
