Jared Fogle is a spokesperson for Subway.

The fast-food diet sensation may have started with Jared Fogle, the Indiana University student who transformed his body on the Subway eat fresh selections.

Today, there are at least two more fast-food diets in the news, the Starbucks diet and the McDonald’s diet.

Always consult your doctor before starting any new health or diet initiative.

Jared’s Subway Diet

  • Breakfast of coffee.
  • Lunch of a Subway 6-inch turkey sub, a diet soda, and small bag of baked potato chips or pretzels.
  • Dinner of a Subway foot-long Veggie Delite sandwich, a diet soda, and small bag of baked potato chips or pretzels.

Fogle ordered sandwiches filled with lettuce, green peppers, banana peppers, jalapeno peppers and pickles. Fogle omitted cheese and condiments that contained fat like mayonnaise and oil. Instead, he used condiments like spicy mustard or vinegar. He alternated ordering the sandwiches on wheat or white bread, the choices that Subway offered at the time.
