I’m heading out to Subway for lunch soon, and I’m tired of eating the same old sandwich. I used to get (before trying to lose weight) the ham foot long on wheat with light mayonnaise, fat free honey mustard, lettuce, tomato, and American cheese (sometimes even adding oil, vinegar, and light salt). Since tracking my food, I’ve been opting for the 6 inch sweet onion teriyaki on wheat with American cheese, double tomato, onion, green pepper, and a light amount of the fat free sweet onion sauce. I really like the sweet onion teriyaki, but I’m getting teriyakied out.

Two questions for you:

1. What do you eat when you go there?

2. Do you have any healthy options that you would suggest I try? (I don’t like olives or turkey. I’ll eat their salads, but I generally pack my own as a side.)…

I Burned 50K Calories! I Burned 25K Calories! I Did 1,000 Pushups! I Burned 5,000 Calories!

If I go to subway I get 6 inch Ham ($5 menu) on wheat:

  • 210 cal – 6 inch Wheat bread
  • 65cal – Ham
  • 2 cal – Double Lettuce
  • 10 cal – Double Tomato
  • 10 cal – Double Onions
  • 2 cal – Double Pickles
  • 5 cal – Mustard (don’t like mustard but better than Mayo)
  • 0 cal – No Cheese (But now that I am off my low fat diet… Maybe I will)

Total 304 Calories but 1200+ sodium!!!

Subway is my first choice if I have to eat out.

I love Subway. Don’t really eat there much though. I normally get the oven roasted chicken on wheat. I add some light mayo and all the veggies that I want. The chicken is thicker than the other meats they offer so it seems more satisfying.

I always get one of the following 6" sub on honey-oat with tomatoes, spinach, cucumbers, onions and black olives:

*chicken teriyaki (no cheese, no extra sauce)
*roasted chicken breast w/sweet onion or honey mustard
*roast beef w/light mayonnaise (no cheese)

Sometimes I have cheese with the chicken breast if I’m really hungry, toasted to melt the cheese. All these sandwiches are under 400 calories without cheese.

I never go to subway these days because the closed the one I would go to, but I usually got either the sweet onion chicken teriyaki, roasted chicken breast or roast beef and lots of veggies.

Before I became more conscious of what I was eating, I went to Subway when I decided to eat something hearty and healthy. I used to get a footlong honey oat sub with Salami, no cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, pickles, and yellow mustard.

I would, however, sometimes splurge into what I thought would be the less healthy sub…the sweet onion chicken teriyaki. But recently I found out that my salami sub is, by far, worse than the sweet onion chicken teriyaki. I was surprised to find that out. So now, my healthy sub is my splurge sub and my splurge sub is my healthy sub. Odd.

I DID have to tailor my splurge sub because at one point it used to look like this:

Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki on Toasted Wheat ( 12" )
Sweet Onion sauce

I’ve removed the bacon, of course. But yeah, that’s what I get now. Otherwise, I’ll get:

Roast Beef on Wheat
Yellow Mustard.
