WAG Wednesdays: Macro Tracking at Chipotle
When you’re on the go, tracking your macros can be a headache, but it doesn’t have to be. Thankfully, there are restaurants with healthy options to help you stay on track. We took a visit and calculated the macros for three orders at one of our faves — Chipotle! So next time you’re looking for convenient, macro-friendly options you can pull this out of your toolkit.
- Ask for your salad/bowl ingredients separately, so you can weigh your ingredients at home for precise macro tracking.
- If you’re holding off on fats, skip the guac, sour cream and cheese.
- Use the Chipotle nutrition calculator if you want another tool to track your order.
Meal 1: Double Chicken Burrito*
Ingredients (vary depending on how you like your burrito):
- 2 tortillas: 1 tortilla is around 350 cal, 9 g fat, 50 g carbs (If they start to double wrap your burrito, ask them to rewrap it in one to avoid sneaky extra calories)
Total calories per serving: 1070 cal
(Serving size: 1 burrito - 720 g)
Protein: 86 g
Fat: 31 g
Carbs: 123 g
*This meal is likely to be the least accurate since everything is wrapped up.
Meal 2: Chicken Burrito Salad
Ingredients (vary depending on how you like your salad):
- Guacamole (on the side)
Total calories per serving: 295 cal
(Serving size: 1 salad - 13.5 ounces)

Carbs: 22 g
Meal 3: Steak Burrito Bowl
Ingredients (vary depending on how you like your bowl):
All on the side (about 4 ounces each):

To increase your accuracy, use a tracking app (we suggest MyFitnessPal) for a close estimate of your order’s nutritional value. Check out all of our MyFitnessPal tutorials to help you get started.
