Taco Bell Calories & Nutritional Information for Dieters

Article by Diet Bites

 


Calories, Nutritional Values

The good news is that Taco Bell can fit well into your weight loss plan as long as you keep in mind that some choices are more diet-wise that other choices.

A regular Crunchy Taco contains about 170 calories, 10 grams of fat, 13 grams of carbohydrates, 3 grams of fiber and 350 grams sodium.  

Dieting Tip for Taco Lovers

Corn tortillas contain about half the calories as flour tortillas.  

One example is their Soft Beef Taco which contains 210 calories, 10 grams of fat and 21 grams of carbohydrates.

The flour shell also ups your carbohydrate count but it also serves as a Grain Group selection and will assist in boosting your energy levels as well as do other great things for the body.

Taco Bell has always put a big foot forward in providing nutritional information to the public and offers low calorie, lower fat versions of many of their menu items.  We feel that it's one of the better fast food choices for dieters, particularly when Fresco Style versions of your favorites are part of your meal plate. Just look at how the kcals and dietary fat can be reduced by ordering in this healthier mode.

Although Fresco is delicious, the Original Style entrees can also be included in most individual's diet.  A bean burrito will leave a body feeling full for hours to come for a moderate 370 calories and 10 grams of fat.

If you have a sweet tooth and are dieting, the Cinnamon Twists make a great diet choice. A serving will only cost you 160 calories and 5 fat grams. Additional Diet Perk:  They taste great!
