Subway restaurant received recognition as a healthy alternative to fast food when regular customer Jared Fogle said he lost a significant amount of weight in a story in “USA Today.” Since then, Fogle become the chain’s spokesman, sharing his story and starring in commercials. Even the subway does not offer an official weight loss plan, it has enough healthy choices to give others the opportunity to follow a Subway-only diet. Just ask Jared Fogle
Starting today at Metro
Until recently, most Subway restaurants only offered lunch menus, opening at 11 a. M. Or later. The chain now offers breakfast omelet sandwiches. But anyone who wants to stick to a low-fat, low-calorie plan should make another choice tomorrow, as most of omelet sandwiches contain at least 400 calories, and no less than 7 fat grams per serving. On the bright side, the most Subways also healthy choices to start the day, including low-fat yogurt and sliced ??apples.
Lucky for Lunch
Perhaps the best thing to follow a diet with only Subway food is the number of options available-from a wide variety of 6-inch sandwiches consisting of less than 6 grams of fat, to wrap to salads to soups. Lunch may consist of a 6-inch ham sub with lettuce, tomato and onions, a side of apple slices and either a diet cola or water. Add the honey mustard dressing sandwich and this meal still comes in at less than 5 grams of fat and about 310 calories.
Grab a snack
Since most nutritionists recommend eating anywhere from four to six smaller meals per day for optimal health and weight loss, can disciples of Subway diet will have another fat yogurt or package with apple slices a few hours after lunch to complement their larger meals. Also a serving of fried chicken noodle soup contains only 80 calories and fat 2 grams.
According subway website, one of Fogle’s favorites include Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki sandwich. There’s also a reasonable choice for dinner as a 6-inch sub contains just 380 calories and 4.5 grams of fat. Add a serving of minestrone soup (90 calories, 1 gram fat) and you just might be able to throw in a bag Lay’s baked potato chips (130 calories, fat 2 grams) without feeling guilty.
Although the benefits of following a Subway diet includes the fact that someone else cook for you and subs are typically made quickly, is an obvious disadvantage expense. With each 6-inch sub costs of $ 3 series, a Subway diet become pricey. Especially when you consider that you could make a corresponding sub home for about 50 cents. But cost aside, can a Subway diet actually help you lose weight without feeling like you’re depriving yourself.
