Wendy's Breakdown

Wendy's Old Fashioned Hamburgers is among the top fast food favorites for many of us. Next time you do what tastes right you may want to also do what is right for your body.

Your best bet, calorie-wise, is the:
Chicken Caesar Salad with no dressing or croutons because it has 180 calories, 4.5 grams of fat, 0 grams of trans fat, 635 mg of sodium and 10 grams of carbs. (If you must have dressing opt for the Fat Free French Style Dressing at 80 calories, 0 grams of fat, 210 mg of sodium and 19 grams of carbs.)

For other, non-salad options,

If you're trying to decide between the 10-Piece Chicken Nuggets or the Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger you should probably go for the:
Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger with no mayo because it has 340 calories, 14 grams of fat, 0.5 grams of trans fat, 790 mg of sodium and 19 grams of carbs.

Just so you know, the 10-Piece Nuggets has 460 calories, 30 grams of fat, 0 grams of trans fat, 1040 mg of sodium and 24 grams of carbs.

What you definitely do NOT want to get is:
The Classic Triple with Cheese which has 970 calories, 59 grams of fat, 3.5 grams of trans fat, 2060 mg of sodium and 38 grams of carbs.

And just for fun...
A jr. Vanilla Frosty has 150 calories and a jr. Chocolate Frosty has 160 calories.

Fit's Tip: Don't be lured in by healthy sounding sandwiches like the Frescata. These sandwiches often have as many (if not more) calories than the average hamburgers. If you do opt for a 'healthy sandwich', make sure you watch any condiments they may smear on the bread.
