Chipotle Obsession

The biggest weakness I have is eating out. I have no self-control when it comes to saying no to eating Chipotle. I realized this could be because humans prefer foods higher in fat. I went to Chipotle’s website and used the nutrition calculator. I figured out that my burrito bowl had roughly 42.5 grams of fat. On Healthy Eating, I learned, “Adults should get 20 to 35 percent of their total daily calories from fat. For those who eat the standard 2,000 calories a day, this ranges from 44 to 77 grams of fat” (Casselbury 2018). I am a smaller female, so I probably shouldn’t even reach that amount. I have never had a bad experience at Chipotle which makes that particular food much more enjoyable. Food neophobia is the tendency to avoid novel foods and prefer familiar foods. Everything that I get at chipotle I have been fed since I was younger. I believe I learned to like Chipotle so much because my family has always had a preference for foods similar to what Chipotle makes. It became a conditioned food preference for me. I ate it so much that my liking for it increased.


  1. Haha, this post is awesome. Soooooo relatable, and so true. I can hardly contain myself when it comes to chipotle. I love it, and as a college student, I look for meals that are easy and comfortable. Having self-control is a very important trait to have, since it can really effect you in a negative way. Great post!

  2. Chipotle is always seen as an healthier option when it comes to food. I really enjoyed this post and found it really informative. Many people are always eating chipotle, and at least can learn about how their addiction may actually be real. Great job!

  3. This post is extremely relatable. I find myself also never really saying no to going out to grab food. I like how you took the extra step to actually find the nutritions in chipotle.
