No worries guys. Those patties are nearly 50% wheat filled anyways. The bun just adds insult to injury.

Wendy's has just beef and salt in their patties. You're thinking of Harvey's.

Thats the thing that drives me nuts @ harvey’s... they grill their burgers which is great. Their condiments and toppings are fresh... crisp lettuce. Good tomato and pickles. Great onion rings.
But their burgers noticly taste of filler.

I think it is matter of taste and opinion and not just about diet.

My wife has no issue ravaging a t-bone streak until nothing is left but a bone resembling a fossil, but simple prefers a burger from A&W to be wrapped in lettuce than in a bun.

A patty, cheese, tomatoes, ketchup wrapped in lettuce just sounds unusual to me, and messy too. Granted I've never tried it so it could be good. Don't get me wrong, I love eating lettuce wraps - I just do it Asian style with chopped chicken, water chestnut, black mushrooms, green onions, hosin sauce wrapped in iceberg lettuce.

Harvey's was good in the 80s (when I worked there as a teen). I've tried them in recent years and find their burgers gross now.

yup, harvey's is filler filled garbage
The Original "Burger" ingredients beef, water, toasted wheat crumbs, salt, wheat flour, modified milk ingredients, hydrolyzed plant protein, onion powder, spices, sugar, dextrose, yeast extract, garlic powder.

Because the bun tastes terrible and it tastes much better with lettuce instead of two thick pieces of bland oversweet soggy bread
I was just telling my friend this. Nothing I hate more than plain bread and plain rice. I have no clue how people eat it and say it tastes amazing

I tried the Dave's single recently and I disagree. The bun tasted great.

People with diabetes taking medication can consume carbs. Next?
Many doctors these days are putting their diabetic patients on a very low carb diet, combined with exercise, in order to try to cure their diabetes (or put it into remission, depending on who you ask). A lifetime of medicine isn't an ideal solution for everyone. Cooking at home is an option, when you're at home. If you're on the road traveling, that's not exactly an option. Pita Pit and other healthy choices might not be an option either for various reasons.

You dont' see the point, but it's all about providing people with more options.
