On most of the fast food websites you can find the nutritional value of their food. For chipotle in particular, if you got a burrito bowl for example you can build your bowl and it will tell you the nutritional content. Then I enter that into Sparkpeople's database.

I put in what I had in mine and looked at it on their website and then I tried to find the closest thing to what I had calorie wise. I think it was a little under though.

You type the name exactly and it will pop up all listings. I click and look at what is in the nutritional data because lots of things are about 10-15 calories up or down compared to the nutritional pamphlets that you are given. Example today I had 2 fresco style chicken soft taco's from taco bell. I typed "taco bell fresco style chicken soft taco" All listings poped up. I looked through them and the first 10 I saw said 170 calories a taco. Tacobells pamphlet says 150 calories. I accepted the 170 and moved on. but if you dont want to you can input the info your self by clicking the add somethign not found button under the box.

I have a question, how do put in stuff from fast food places? Since places like Chipotle has such a wide variety in which things can be put in. Just trying to get exact calorie count.
