Wendy’s has some of the best fries in the fast-food game. You would have to an extremely disciplined health-conscious individual to pass on fries when ordering.

A meal at the redhead’s restaurant is not a meal without the french fries.

Literally every time I go to Wendy’s, the first thing I do is order the fries.

What’s The Best Choice

The calories in Wendy’s fries can’t be reduced. You only have four options. And the only way to reduce the calorie, carb, and fat count is by ordering the smallest available option, which is the Junior (JR.)

Calories in Wendy’s large fries double the calorie and nutrition value of one portion of Junior fries.

However, the Junior size may not be the best choice for an adult who weighs 125 pounds or more.

The small or medium presentation is the ideal size for most people, including teens and the elderly.

But if I had to choose, I would say the medium size is the best option. It will make you feel both satisfied and full, so you probably won’t need to order more.

Whereas if you order the Junior, you may end up ordering another serving.

In fact, you could end up ordering an even bigger portion of french fries, which is not good.

This may lead to overeating, and that means a higher intake of calories, carbohydrates, and fat.

Best Tip: As always, enjoy, but in moderation.
