I suppose it depends what you get.
I usually get a toasted beef and red onion sub myself, but I'm pretty sure the beef has a fair bit of salt in it. I could make it epically unhealthy though if I wanted to :P
The meatball mariana is killer though - I got one from a 24 hour Subway in Central London before a night out - that sorted me for the night!

What a load of *******s. Of course its not junk food, its a freshly made sandwich packed with salad items. Low in sugar, low in salt, low in fat. Exactly the right amount of carbs, dairy, protein and nutrition you need for lunch. Just because its from an American chain does not automatically make it junk food. Oh the limited thinking on this forum
I love how people here sneer at subway and then go and eat a **** ing prepacked sandwich and a bag a crisps.

It's a fast food chain with healthy and unhealthy options like any restaurant.
If you have say, (my favourite) a 6 inch Turkey and Ham, lettuce, cucumber, tomato, onions, gherkins, jalapenos, peppers, that's going to be healthier for you than a 6 inch double meat steak and cheese!

I generally feel bad after a Sub, but that's because of the sheer COST of the place.
Gotta love a good chicken breast sub with salad and ranch sauce
