Meet Jared Fogle, dieter turned celebrity. His claim to fame is losing a ton of weight, well 245 pounds to be more specific. As a college student, Jared became fed up with being morbidly obese. The son of a medical professional believed he found the answer to his weight issues with the one-stop sandwich shop Subway, which happened to be conveniently located next to his Indiana apartment.
To drop more than 200 pounds, Fogle ate the same thing every day: no breakfast, 6" turkey sub and a bag of baked chips for lunch and a 12" veggie sub for dinner, topped with nothing but extra vegetables. Plus unlimited diet soda throughout the day. Jared's calorie intake was under 1,000 calories daily. The diet might have quickly become boring and unbearable to many people, however, Jared stuck with it.
Throughout his weight loss passage, Jared consulted his father, a physician, for medical advice to ensure that he was getting the proper amount of vitamins and minerals. Since the crusade that made Jared a household name, many others have followed in his footsteps. Subway has even become a leader in providing healthy, convenient fast food options with its menu of 6" inch sandwiches under 6 grams of fat.
Experts recommend that you consult your doctor before taking a trip on the Subway.
