Subway

My little brother is on a calorie controlled diet, just trying to loose a few extra pounds and doing some moderate excersize. nothing too serious. basically his mates are going subway in a minute and he wanted to know if he could eat one of there healthy option rolls. i told him that this is not the best sort of food but as long as he is still in a calorie deficit it shouldnt do any harm to his weight loss. Am i right in what i say in retrespect to a subway sandwich. If im wrong please let me know.

    It depends.

    Does it fit in with his diet? ? ?

    Is he going to have it as something social or a treat? ? ? If so, tell him to have it.

    There are worse places to eat, wouldn't worry to much when its a one off. If he was eating them every day thats going to be an issue. I think if you go to the subway web site you can get a nutrition breakdown of everything.

    He doesnt really have a set diet, he is just trying to eat healthy, and has lost a little weight with that and excersize. i think its just his worried as even tho its the "healthy" option, that its still fast food. i told him it should be ok as he is just trying to consume less calories than needed per day.

    A six inch wholmeal sub with some lean meat and salad no dressing has got to be one of the best fast food options. Subway dont use butter/margerine aswell.

    calories determine weight loss

    calorie quality determines body composition and health

    if subway fits into that, crack on, if it doesnt, change it

    get a chicken breast teriyakki on wheat.... with some salad just make sure its not like everyday as others have said... but id say that was your best option rather than their processed meats

    IMO Subway is about the best 'Fast Food' option as you can choose what to get on it right down to having no mayo or sauce. Have it as a treat or a cheat meal should be fine or if its social.

    I disagree, they do veg subs and lean meat subs etc. Yo also have a choice of white/brown/ or wholemeal bread. Better tha Mc Donalds IMO

    I love the italian BMT, full of processed meats but what the heck. Great every now and again!

     Fall in love with the process - and the results will come!
