Thanks,ladies. Good point about what the beans were cooked in. I ended up with about 330 with the extra veggies(not grilled). All in all, it was a very filling salad so I'm pretty happy even with a higher number.

When I put it into the Nutrition Calculator I got 295 calories, not 390

Here is the site I had:
http://www.moes.com/food/nutrition/calculator/

EDIT: i just found the page with the close talker salad. the other veggies might put it closer to 325-330, but did you have grilled veggies on it? or were the veggies raw? that would play with the caloric content as well.

From what I see - the calculator is completely customizable. It doesn't include cheese unless you add it. I would go with their numbers. The chicken may be cooked in oil. No clue what the beans may be cooked it.

I just did a salad with no shell with chicken, beans and pico and it was definitely not 390. I don't know what other veggies you had, so I won't post the NI here. Maybe start fresh and check again

Hi all,
I am very careful about tracking, and today I ate a Moe's Southwest Grill chicken "close talker" salad (streak--no shell or chips or anything). I did not get cheese, guacamole, sour cream, or even salad dressing--just chicken, black beans, pico de gallo, and veggies. On the Moe's nutrition calculator, that comes out to about 390. I am wondering how? Since I measure my food very day, I am very familiar with what servings look like. I am confident that I had no more than 3.5 ounces of chicken and about a third of a cup of beans--at most. By my calculations, I am nowhere near 390. I noticed in Moe's that the salad includes cheese, etc. So, should I use Moe's calculator or go with my estimations and Spark people's calorie counts? The rest of my day hangs in the balance. :) Thanks for any assistance.
