Wendy’s does not have a nutrition calculator on their website. This means that we can’t tell you exactly how many carbs you’ll be eating if you take our advice.
However, Wendy’s has several burgers, chicken sandwiches, and salads that can fit into your low-carb diet every once and awhile. Major ticket items to avoid are bread and sauces.
