>>7032917 Its hurting, but obviously not the primary cause. The problem it is so dishonest, and anytime when corporations pander to anti-science causes it bothers me (but not enough to get me to stop eating there)
>>7032926 I don't see how it is in any way dishonest since they don't make any false claims. If anything, they're probably stretching the "locally-sourced" part, but it's just consumers being complete retards unable to comprehend positive connotations and actual balanced eating.
>>7032937 >I don't see how it is in any way dishonest since they don't make any false claims They are implying that being natural is good. This is inherently dishonest http://gizmodo.com/chipotles-anti-gmo-stance-is-some-pandering-bullshit-1700437048
>>7032940 Again, you're misinterpreting positive connotations with "healthy" food. And in the strictest terms, they are not serving GMO products as the animals themselves are not subject to modification. But then again who really gives a shit about GMOs, oh wait, the people that think Chipotle is healthy because it's "all-natural" and "organic".
>>7032956 >they are not serving GMO products as the animals themselves are not subject to modification. They made a big deal about publicizing their switch to non-GMO crops (though conveniently left out how it doesn't apply to the soda, or the diets of the livestock they sell)
It is indefensible, and entrenching the ridiculous belief that science is bad
>>7033011 Im not sure to the extent chipotle advertises as im not american but even with say mcdonalds advertising their beef as 100% angus in Australia for many years you would have to be a fool to think its healthy. Again The problem is with education system especially since these corporations are making no false claims. Also seriously who eats fast food frequently from the same franchise without fear of getting fat?
>>7033048 They are claiming removing GMO's is good, which is objectively false (also they didn't really remove GMOs as they only removed it from the veggies in their burritos, not from their other products, so its false in that way too)
I'm not the OP, its ridiculous to blame chipotle for getting you fat, I am just upset that they have the pandering anti-science bullshit
>>7032866 >using such specific numbers to make your point >implying that calories in vs calories out only works when you eat a low cal diet >implying you couldn't eat a 1500 calorie burrito every day and still lose weight
That info graphic is logically unsound (and also fucking retarded).
>>7033053 Man the gmo debate is comical to me, it makes no sense for gmos to be bad and people believe an ad sinve they never learned what gmo actually means and are scared of the unknown (and abbreviated). Still not chipotles fault but they shouldnt do it although im im indifferent to it
>>7032893 This. They have a calorie calculator on their website even. Chipotle isn't even bad for you, but these people probably shove the burrito down their gullet with a large soda and then just sit around at home in front of a tv. Chipotle is fine for you, a sedentary lifestyle is the real culprit, but of course fatties won't take responsibility for their poor life choices and just want to point fingers
>>7032899 Anti gmo is for a reason. The entire town of Spokane Washington is suing the agrichemical giant, Monsanto, hundreds of cases have been filed for the link recently discovered between non-hodgkins lymphoma and Glysophate, the active ingredient in Roundup. Pesticide is poison. There's no way to make it safe. Common sense.
That being said I only eat at Chipotle if I'm absolutely desperate. I've worked food service for years. Poor health choice aside I don't let anyone prepare my food, especially low wage workers that are likely high as fuck.
>>7035572 Soon I hope, all though of course... When money is involved they just try to pay people off. I hope over the next 10 years or so organic just becomes standard again. Tired of paying out the ass for vegetables just so they don't taste like rubber and give me cancer.
>>7035572 >link recently discovered between non-hodgkins lymphoma and Glysophate, the active ingredient in Roundup This is only relevant to agriculture workers, there is not a significant amount of the chemical in your burrito
Incorrect, the real culprit of the calories is sour cream and cheese. The burritos are fairly clean food otherwise. Also it doesn't matter how "healthy" something is, energy is fucking energy. You don't use the energy of COURSE you're going to get fat, cause and effect.
>>7032866 that image is stupid, i'm 6'2" and exercise 5/7 days per week. i eat a lot of high calorie foods. i could probably eat two of those burritos per day without a weight change.
the ingredients seem healthy enough, just because you eat too much doesn't mean the food is unhealthy. this is why people think everything has to be low calorie when that's probably one of the worst things to do for maintaining a proper long term diet.
I'm 5'6 and weigh 265 pounds (all muscle) and I exercise every time I work. I don't even need to go to a gym because I lift so much at work (I stock at Sam's Club). I eat Chipotle 5 times a week sometimes twice a day (lunch and dinner, sometimes brunch) and the only 40 pounds I gained was pure gain I made into muscle.
I refuse to believe that two burritos a week is enough to put on 40 pounds in a year. Those would have to be mondo burritos, the kind anyone with half a brain knows are a sometimes food, and not a twice a week thing.
>>7032924 Dude, wtf. I live near DC and there is only 2 chipotles within 5 miles of me, and only 1 qdoba. Is this why america is so fat? Is this why Northern VA is, so far, immune to the fat pandering?
eating a chipoltle burrito is like eating a papa johns veggie pizza. Its carbs fat and protein. you can eat the whole damn thing and still eat healthy
Its rice, beans, veggies, guacamole, and cilantro in a wheat wrap. Just imagine eating all those things separately. "oh wow so healthy much nutrition" Combine them all together and suddenly "zomg so unhealthy eating out is so bad 4 u".
People that complain about this shit are the fucking worst.
There is absolutely nothing intrinsically wrong with GMOs, but I'm super wary of big agribusiness in general because they're horrible companies in general and I don't have much reason to really trust that they're being forthright with scientific data about the health/environmental impact (not to mention social) of their products.
I voted no on the CA prop for GMO labeling back in like '13, but in retrospect I realized that buying into the argument that the was just a scare tactic was an incredibly myopic point of view. Consumers should be empowered to make informed decisions with their consumption in all regards, and a lack of transparency only benefits capital interests in the end. If someone doesn't want to buy Monsanto-based crops (and personally I don't even if just because of how badly they screw over farmers) then that's their prerogative.
>>7032866 It's good for bigass brunch if plan to have a light dinner. In a sense it is healthy if you break it down. it just that it's a shit load of food to eat. So it's more of portion/calories that makes you a tub of lard. But it's good fuel
Yeah, Chipotle is actually pretty acceptably healthy if you're doing it right. Get a salad (which is just a bowl plus extra romaine which is actually very nutrient dense) so you skip out on all the extra calories the gross tortilla adds, get beans and rice and the tofu thing plus corn salsa and pico de gallo and you're golden. Their sauces aren't even very good plus they're loaded with salt, and you can skip out on the sour cream and cheese to avoid lots of extra fat. Romaine, beans, rice, tofu, tomato and corn is not a gross meal by any stretch of the imagination. Plus their meat is bad anyway and makes my inner San Diegan cry.
anyone here know how to mimic a chipotle recipe? specifically, their steak.
honest to god i used to be so hard core addicted that i started running scams to get free coupons cuz i couldn't afford to eat there. i have racked up over 1000 dollars in debt from eating at chipotle, cuz i HAVE to get the double steak burito wtih guacamole every god damn time
how do i recreate the recipe? google says to just use canned adobo peppers, but i did that and it didnt taste remotely the same to me.
>>7037651 It would take a 10" plate to fit half a cup of rice once cooked, and that's 400 calories if they decide to put some sort of fat in. You aren't getting anywhere near that much in a burrito.
Their website says the rice and tortilla together are 510. A steak burrito with white rice, black beans, sour cream, cheese, and the entire order of chips is 1605 calories. Half of this comes from the last three ingredients, which are also the least filling. If you're getting that twice a week, you deserve to put on forty pounds a year. The easiest way to meet your weight goals, whether that's losing, gaining, or maintaining weight, is to count calories, and the easiest way to do that is to make your own food so that you know exactly what's going into your mouth.
