I was thinking if Subway sandwiches are good while on CID. It's got the carbs, pro, fat, and fiber from the veggies. What's your opinion on this?

First of all, subway is still considered fast food.

Second, its expensive at hell, if you spend $5 a day on it x 30 days = $150 a month!!! Cheese and rice, thats more than i spend on chicken, tuna, eggs, rice and oatmeal a month!!!

And finally, if you think you're gonna look like Jarred from those commercials, check this out

Uh, okay. I guess that means 'fast food' chicken and bread is in some magical way different than regular chicken and bread.

They (fast food places) soak their chicken in weird ass **** some times. I can bet that the "wheat bread" isn't whole stone ground wheat either. That's an assumption on my part, but I'd still rather pay less for more. ;)

But, seriously, if you like it and can afford it, eat it. If you aren't seeing results, cut it out and see if that changes. Rocket science.

Subway should be fine I would watch the type of bread you are getting but things such as chicken Breast are not soaked in any S*** . Actually subway is one of the better places to grab food from if you have to eat fast.

I must say I agree with the cost factor. If you know you are going to be out prepare your food it may cost a little less. BTW if you plan to eat subway alot make sure to get the staps for the sub club atleast you eat for free every so often.

LOL, I'm half the size of Jared. I just got off CKD and TKD and got tired of eating fat. That's why I thought I'd try a CID.

What I really wanted to know about Subway is the ingredients they use in their sandwich. Does the meat provide good source of protein? Is the chicken breast really chicken or just full of binders like the McNuggets? Is the wheat bread really 100% whole wheat?

I still say it's fine. But there are certainly more all around healthy alternatives.

Personally, I love the taste of sodium stearoyl-2-lactylate.

Blood what are you talking about man? We all know that acetylated tartaric acid esters of mono-and diglycerides tastes better.
