Diet...sad news!

I'm smack dab in the middle of week 2 and things aren't going so well.  I have a voracious love of Taco Bueno Mucho Nachos!  Coco knows about this because she shares this love but she doesn't live near a Taco Bueno.  Unfortunately I have 4 in a 6 mile radius of my home!  Weight Watchers is based on points which are based on calories and fat and the Mucho Nacho are off the charts.  My daughter Courtnay also is dieting and she also loves these lovlies.  I went to the website to look up the nutritional information and what I found nearly gave me a heart attack but mostly it made me very, very sad. Court has a points calculator so we figured that the nachos in question have roughly 39 daily allowance is 22!  But for you folks who are not doing Weight Watchers here is the breakdown...whether you are counting calories, or carbs this will blow your socks off!

Calories  1567
Fat           97 gms
Carbs     127 gms
Sodium  4105 mgs!!!!!!

Have a nice day!


  1. Can that be right?!!!!!! 97 fat grams????? I didn't think that was possible!

    I LOVE Taco Bueno, too!

  2. Yes. . . we lived without Taco Bueno for 8 years in this town until one finally showed up in Round Rock. It was a long haul . . .only my addiction was to Nacho Salads. (Surely there's less calories and fat in a salad, right? Yeah. . . I'll just keep telling myself that).

    Congratulations on the first 5 pounds!
