Mark Rantal: Colorado man has Chipotle food for lunch for 107 straight days -- and counting


COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - (KOAA/NBC) If you think variety is the spice of life, you're probably not eating the same restaurant food every day.

Mark Rantal, 30, of Colorado Springs, Colo., has eaten Mexican food from his local Chipotle restaurant for 107 straight days.

Rantal said at first he was just trying to eat at the restaurant for a week.  That then turned into a month and eventually to 107 days.

Rantal said he mainly eats a burrito bowl with white rice, pinto beans, fajitas, sofritas, salsa, corn, cheese and lettuce.

The graphic designer said he hasn't decided how long he will continue to eat Chipotle daily.

"I liked it. That is why I started eating here regularly. Before I was eating here every single day, I was eating (at Chipotle) maybe twice a week something like that.  I like the flavors. I was fun to be here. It's a cool environment. And it was right down town," said Rantal.

"On Wednesday, I was hanging out and my friend was like, ‘So how long do you think you can go? You did three days in a row. Do you think you can go the whole work week?’ I did all five, then I was hanging out with a friend on Saturday and he was like, ‘Dude, do a full week.’ And every time it was like that.  On day eight they were like, ‘Dude go a month.’ And after a month it was like, ‘Dude do 100 days.’  And of course now on the Internet , its ‘Dude do a year.  I was like, ‘OK Internet I don't know.’ This all just started because I was just hungry.”

If you think Rantal is a little crazy, there’s a Los Angeles man who has consumed Chipotle for the past 154 days.
