South Beach Diet - P2 at Taco Bell?
06-18-2009, 12:52 PM
I'm in P2 now and would like to maybe have Taco Bell after my son's baseball game this evening.
I know Pintos 'N Cheese will work, but what else? Any whole grain tortillas there or is that just wishful thinking? :D

Bring your own....Ive done it.
I am not on SB however I try not to eat any "white" carbs. I seriously order pintos and cheese and spread it on a whole grain tortilla that I bring in a baggie in my purse.
Maybe I am a bit strange but I do it all the time at all kinds of "fast food" places.

Taco Bell is pretty much a no-go for SBD. It's really pretty unhealthy and has lots of processed food, which makes it a poor choice for SBD.
The cheese in the Pintos and cheese is full fat (3g sat.), which isn't an SBD-safe choice. The beans have trans-fats (hydrogenated oil):
Pinto Beans, Partially Hydrogenated Corn Oil (Freshness Preserved With TBHQ), Salt, Calcium Chloride.
If you have no other choice, you may want to check out the nutritional calculator (http://www.tacobell.com/nutrition/calculator/) at their website to see what's least harmful.
Personally, I'd avoid it altogether and either make Mexican at home or consider a more healthy alternative like (depending on your location) Baja Fresh, Salsarita's, or Rubio's.

Small town - we don't have any of those places here. I just want to not cook tonight, it doesn't have to be Taco Bell. I'll probably get a grilled chicken salad at Sonic instead.
I mean, I've got homemade refried beans in the freezer and if I have to take my own tortilla anyway I might as well eat that here rather than paying for it. :D
So Sonic it is, thanks for helping me think this through.
