subway is every bit as bad for you as mcdonald’s tbh. those huge sandwiches and all their processed fillings are full of salt, sugar, fat, etc. not to mention the classic scenario of people getting their ‘healthy’ lunch baguettes and salad boxes not so much lightly drizzled as inundated with maximum-unhealth toppings and sauces at the end of the counter. ‘but my foot-long baguette of salty-sweet bread covered in a flume of bbq/ranch dressing is so much healthier than a quarter-pounder!’
it was genius marketing by subway to position themselves as a ‘healthy alternative’ to the big bad trio of burger king/mcdonald’s/KFC and so on. but marketing was really all it is. subway’s lunch offers swap out fries and coke for, er, a packet of chips and a coke. or why not have a large cookie with that over-stuffed baguette, sir? healthy!
it’s amazing to me that subway literally marketed, in all seriousness, the ‘success story’ of a guy who ate subway everyday to ‘lose weight’. truly a testament to an advertising culture that tries to sell opiates on TV like candy. lmao. didn’t that jared guy lose weight by only
eating one subway per day in total? well, yeah, anyone is going to lose weight if they go from eating 3-5 meals a day to 1. still doesn’t mean that subway isn’t a terrible choice for nutrition and sensible diet in every way.
