the semi famous bloke who lost a tonne of weight from it only did so because he was walking every day to work and back. also, the subways you'd have on the diet are the **** ones with just vegetables in i think, and only the 6 inchers.

Don't they put sugar and rubbish in their 'bread'....can't you jsut do a normal sensible cheap diet ie loads of fresh fruit/veg and a little bit of everything else and do exercise. Your money would be better spent on a gym membership where they can advise you what sort of workouts you need...doubt the people in subway as nice as i'm sure they are can tell you much about your BMI.........

Sweet bread is disgusting.

I can't believe they eat bread like that in America.

I have done some research on this myself, it seems the salt levels in Subway bread is actually lower than the stuff you buy in supermarkets.

The trick with subway is to avoid salt and pepper, cheese and any sources. As soon as you add salt, pepper, cheese, ketchup etc it becomes a high salt and high sugar diet.

Subways are not exactly the healthiest food on the planet but if you keep them simple I reckon they are one of the most healthy take aways you can get.

It depends on the recipe. Some needs sugar to "feed" the yeast and thus help the bread rise

Sugar helps the yeast along. You would have only put in about a teaspoon or so, depending on the size of the loaf and the amount/type of yeast you were using.

the problem with subway is that they don't change their gloves often enough. and also food gets contaminated by traces of other food. For example, as a vegan i have no animal products at all. The guy infront of me in the q gets a meatball sub, So the assistant puts cheese on the sub, the (with the same gloves) put's his hand in the salad, onions, and peppers, before putting the meatballs on. Then after asking the customer if he wants anything else, the customers requests some more salad, so without removing the gloves (which now have sauce from the meat, and cheese on) he dips his hand back in the salad.
So when i come to get my sub, the guy changes his gloves, but there are already traces of other bits of food all over the place. And that goes on every time someone eats a sandwhich.
It doesn't cause problems because there is such small amounts involved, but as a vegan i don't like the thought that there might be traces of meat or dairy on my food.
Sorry to rant, but this never comes up in conversation, and i am glad i have my chance to vent!
I used to eat subways a lot, and they are not amazingly unhealthy (if you get the low fat ones and don't have cheese, or white bread), but i wouldn't go back and eat there.

Hmmm, well to be honest I don't think people who live on the subway really eat that much, so I doubt it is that good for you.

I happen to work at Subway and do you have any idea how much money it would cost and how bad for the environment it would be to change our gloves 3 TIMES! to make one sandwich?

It's meant to be fast food, it would takes ages for you to get your sandwich if you expected us to put new gloves on to cut the bread and then new ones to pick up the meat and then new ones for the cheese and then new ones for the salad. Especially considering if your hands are clammy or damp it takes ages to try and pull them on and we have to wash our hands everytime we put a new pair of gloves on.

Its just not possible.
