    Whether youre at Chipotle, Qdoba, Moes, or another fast-casual Mexican chain, the usual piles some 1,000 calories on your plate. Exhibit A: a 1,140-calorie Chipotle Chicken Burrito (flour tortilla, chicken, white rice, black beans, roasted chili-corn salsa, sour cream, cheese). You can get it down to 570 by switching to a Chicken Burrito Bowl (half brown rice, half romaine topped with chicken, black beans, fajita veggies, tomatillo green-chili salsa, and cheese).
