Taco Bell Has Good Menu Options for Dieters

We're lovers of spice and yes - the Volcano Taco can fit into your healthy weight loss plan.

However, take note of the other versions of this heated entree - the burrito and nachos which are exploding with dietary fat grams - including a plethora of saturated and Trans fat, as well as caloric content.

Be wise when choosing and think about all the other foods that you could enjoy which contain from 800 calories to 1,000 because that's the bulky price that you'll have to pay for these one-food items on the menu.

Taco Bell serves much-healthier menu items - from their Mexican Rice to their regular tacos.

Even their bean and cheese burrito is reasonable for 370 calories and 11 total fat grams.

Oh those pesky flavored tortilla chips that are at the market these days. We can be wheeling by the chip section and it's not until we arrive at the check out counter when we discover that they have literally jumped into our shopping cart.

When enjoyed in moderation - as in one-ounce, they can fit into most weight loss plans. But for every ounce comes the increase in caloric and fat values - as well as cholesterol which greatly impact the number on your weight scales.

Enjoy with seasoned extra lean ground beef or spicy beans and reduced fat cheese to keep values under your control. Add a nice salad mix of chopped leafy green lettuce, chopped onions of any variety, tomatoes and fresh cilantro. It's sure tasty!
