Taco Bell Carbohydrates & Fiber Grams

Written by Diet Bites

 


Best Choices for Low Carb Dieters

Best Choices: Crunchy Taco, the Taco Supreme® and the Taco Supreme® (Beef Fresco Style) make the best choices for the low carb dieter.

Mexican food dining isn't the best place for the dieter who is monitoring their carbohydrate intake.

Limiting Simple Carbohydrates for Weight Loss

As a health note, while it's an excellent idea to decrease simple carbohydrates from the daily diet such as doughnuts, pastries, cookies, candy, cakes and pies - it's vital to optimum health as well as for your energy levels to ensure that your diet contains complex carbohydrates.

Corn Tortillas, Whole Grain Healthy Choice

Many of the menu selections contain either a flour tortilla shell or a corn shell. The corn shell is more likely to consist of whole grain as well as fewer calories and makes an excellent grain group choice.

There are many menu items that are substantial in carbohydrate grams on the Taco Bell menu, including menu selections that are very high in caloric and dietary fat content. When you are dieting, while carbohydrate grams might be of great importance to you, it's more important to examine all of the nutritional elements that make-up the food.

Menu Selection High in Carbohydrate Grams

Let's list the menu selections that contain quite a few carbohydrates and which aren't necessarily the best choices for those restricting them.

The Fiesta Taco Salad is extreme in carbohydrates at a Godzilla-size 82 grams and it only contains 12 dietary fiber grams. It also contains close to 900 calories and is mined with almost 2,000 mgs of sodium.

The Salt Factor

This is the point where we must cite: Sodium Overload as well as Calorie and Carbohydrate Overloads.

Grilled Options

Now let's move into the grilled options. When the word 'grilled' is bandied about we might assume, as is the case with 'salads' that the menu item is very low in caloric content as well as carbohydrate grams. Unfortunately, that Grilled Beef Stuffed Burrito contains over 700 calories and over 2,000 mgs of sodium content.

As to the menu selections which contain potatoes - these are going to be substantial in carbohydrate gram content as are the rice selections.
