Day 53 – Wendy’s and Diet Math

Wendy’s is really cool, because you can have one of their Jr Cheeseburgers for only 270 calories. That may sound like a lot if you’re counting calories, but it’s pretty low for a fast-food burger. Their chili with cheese and onions is also 270 calories and is a nice side instead of fries. Fries, by the way, are like a million calories!
If you’ve been following our blog, you may have noticed that Brian continues to lose weight even though his cumulative calorie scoreboard says that he should have gained weight. We suspect that this is because the rate that Brian burns calories while resting may be higher. Over the next two weeks or so, we will be monitoring Brian’s weight and calorie intake in an attempt to find out about how many calories Brian burns per day without any steps. It will be interesting to see how the math works out.
