The Subway Diet Part 2

Hello everyone!

Weight loss on a bun?  Not so fast...

Yesterday, I posted about the Subway Diet.  This post will cover the diet portion of it and what it breaks down into. 

Here's a breakdown of the Subway diet (How Jared did it)

Breakfast: Cup of coffee (some dieters eat a small bowl of cereal)

Lunch: 6 inch turkey sub (no mayo or cheese) and baked chips

Dinner: Footlong veggie delight sub (no mayo/cheese/etc)

That's it.  Usually in a day you are taking in less than 1000 calories a day.  For him, it worked.


1. Convenient (especially if you are on the road a lot, there's Subways everywhere)
2. Planning is minimal since you are eating the same thing every day
3. Probably won't be hungry as these sandwiches are pretty filling.


1. Expensive. If you do this diet as he did, expect to spend about 10$ or less per day on food.  For some people that can be pricey.
2. Not suitable for people who can't eat gluten
3. Not suitable for vegans (As far as I know, the bread is not even vegan)

Technically you could do this at home in a cheaper way, by making sandwiches at home but making sure you are in the right calorie ranges and following similar guidelines.

I believe he had his sandwiches on whole wheat bread and only used yellow mustard as a condiment. No cheese, no oil, etc.

So to me, the diet is mostly common sense. It's basically just another way to eat sensibly.
