While fad diets are sweeping the country, some restaurants and fast food chains are hurting because they don't have a ton of, if any, menu items specifically for different types of diets. But Chipotle just announced that they are giving some customers exactly what they desire with a few dishes for three popular diets including the Ketogenic Diet, the Whole 30 Diet, and the Paleo Diet.

According to People, the taco giant just released a bowl for each of the three diets so customers who are watching what they eat can still indulge in Chipotle. First on the list is the Paleo Salad Bowl that comes complete with romaine lettuce, barbacoa, fajita veggies, green salsa, and guacamole. This is perfect for Paleo dieters because it contains lean meat as well as veggies.

Next on the list is a Whole 30 friendly bowl that is very similar to the Paleo Bowl. This bowl swaps barbacoa for carnitas and also comes with Romaine lettuce, fajita veggies, tomato salsa, and guacamole. Then there's the Keto Salad Bowl that has romaine lettuce, carnitas, red salsa, cheese, and guac. The keto diet includes low-carb, high-fat foods, so this bowl is perfectly fitting.

"These first-to-category, diet-driven menu offerings are helping those who have committed to living a healthier lifestyle by making it easy to order delicious bowls that only contain the real ingredients permitted by certain diet regimens."

The new changes come under new CEO Brian Niccol, who served as the former head of Taco Bell. He has made some fixes to the menu since the infamous 2015 E. coli outbreak that affected stores in 14 states and made at least 60 customers sick.
