Health Quiz Answer, Calories and Good Menu Choices for Dieters at Wendy's Restaurant: CORRECT

Wendy's Restaurant Grilled Chicken Go Wrap contains 260 calories and 10 grams of total dietary fat.

The Medium Frosty contains 420 calories, 11 fat grams. The small is at 300 and the junior size at 200 calories - so the customer has a nice range of choices. As a side note, the large is at 600 boss calories so unless you're planning to share, don't go there.

On the other hand, the Grilled Chicken Go Wrap is an excellent choice for your weight loss plan and with the caloric content so low, you can add more food to your personal meal plate; what about a small chili for 210 skinny calories and only 6 total fat grams?

There are a lot of things that we like about Wendy's.

The following are excellent choices while dieting or not based on caloric values.

Large Chili - 310 calories, 9 grams of fat, and it tastes yum-yum. Purchase an extra container to enjoy for another meal. All chili recipes tend to get better the day after they are prepared.

If you're in the mood for a burger and bacon and only bacon will do, their Junior Bacon Cheeseburger contains 400 calories which should fit into a weight loss plan; take note however that it's rather steep in dietary fat at 24 total grams. In addition, there is one gram of Trans fat in the burger - the worst variety of fat.

Ultimate Chicken Grill - basically, their grilled chicken sandwich. It contains 390 calories and about 10 fat grams in total.

Chicken Nuggets, 5 piece - 220 calories, 14 grams fat; do watch the dressings that you dip your nuggets into.

Sour Cream & Chive Potato: 320 calories, 3.5 fat grams.  They also have a broccoli-cheese version that is close to 500 calories, a bit too steep.

Yes, it's rich in vegetable content but you may have difficulty satisfying all of the Food Group recommendations because you'll be left with few calories to work with - and you'll only have satisfied the Vegetable Group's minimal serving recommendations.

The challenge that remains will be fitting in 6 servings of grain, three fruit servings, 2 protein servings and 2 dairy group servings.

Apple Pecan Chicken Salad: You'll want to order the half-salad for 340 calories and 18 fat grams. The fat is a bit high due in part to the addition of nuts in the salad. Here are more nutrition facts for Wendy's salads:
