Keep Your Eating on Track While on the Go with These Tricks

Between Halloween candy, Thanksgiving pies and Christmas cookies, the last few months of the year are chocked full of high-carb moments. If you’re trying to stick to a low-carb and/or keto diet during this time of the year, we’ve assembled an update on Eating Low Carb at Wendy’s®.  As you’ll see, eating low-carb at Wendy’s doesn’t mean ignoring your cravings or sacrificing on flavor.

Low-Carb Diet Options

Fresh salads are an easy way to stick to a low-carb diet which limits your intake of grains, starchy vegetables and fruit. Luckily, Wendy’s salad menu is packed with delicious flavors, textures and toppings. For example, the half-size Parmesan Caesar Chicken Salad (5g Net Carbs) and the Caesar Side Salad, without croutons (4g Net Carbs) deliver big flavor and low carbs – dressing included!

While fresh salads are a great option, there are plenty of ways you can nix the carbs and still enjoy Wendy’s fresh, never frozen beef* too. You can always order any of our delicious sandwiches without the bun, as everything on Wendy’s menu is customizable. We’ll always do our best to accommodate your dietary needs.

Keto Diet Options

If you’re looking to count your macros and the keto diet is more your speed, try a few of these options to make sure you’re hitting your desired calorie percentages of fat, protein and carbs:

Add extra cheese and/or protein, such as an additional fresh, never frozen beef patty or strip of sizzling Applewood smoked bacon, on our sandwiches to hit your goals.

The S’Awesome Bacon Cheeseburger delivers 29g of protein and only 6g Net Carbs when you remove the bun; it’s a true keto powerhouse.

Other crave-worthy options include the Dave’s Single® with no ketchup and the Grilled Chicken Sandwich, which comes in at 24g and 29g of protein respectively and are both 4g Net Carbs. You can shed an additional 3 Net Carbs by removing the Smoky Honey Mustard Sauce from the Grilled Chicken Sandwich.
