I like either the Double Meatball or SubClub, but I need a protein shake with it. They have a nutritional guide instore you can refer too.

A foot long chicken breast sub has 50 grams of protein with only 10 grams of fat

A foot long chicken breast sub has 50 grams of protein with only 10 grams of fatThat's about the healthiest sub they have. The footlong meatball is packed full of salt and fat.

Thanks a lot, I have a pizza place just a cross the street from me, I been going to it a lot, it's time for a change, I needed a nutrition going out plan and I don't want to turn back to the crappy Pizza (fatten wise), I been eating Pizza about 20 times a month, so I really thank you for your help.

That's kind of why I'm here, I need to workout more and play videogames less.

I need to workout more and play videogames less.Quoted for truth, hehe. Well you've come to the right place. This is a great place to start.

pizza acually isnt all that bad for you,depending on what you get and the quality of the ingredients

03-27-2006, 03:39 PM
Um...what does pizza have to do with Subway?

03-27-2006, 04:11 PM
i like the chicken bacon, with provolone and honey mustard.

03-27-2006, 05:36 PM
One with lots of calories, and lots of protein.

I always get a foot long chicken breast on whole wheat. Get all the nutritional info here (http://www.subway.com/applications/NutritionInfo/nutritionlist.aspx?id=sandwich).

03-27-2006, 08:03 PM
Roast beef, with loads of veggies (light or no iceberg lettuce, bell peppers, onions, pickles, jalapenos, and cucumbers), on wheat bread.

03-27-2006, 09:12 PM
What do you guys think about tuna?

03-27-2006, 09:18 PM
Mmmm...tuna. Ugh...I used to work at Subway back in the day. Making the tuna was gross. It has low-fat mayo, though.

03-27-2006, 10:03 PM
personally i think goodcents is much better than subway if you have the choice.

03-28-2006, 08:16 AM
I always get this:

12" wheat
Double Turkey Breast
Double American Cheese
Oil and Vinegar

God it is amazing I love it.

Thanks again guys and the link from Jorge Sanchez will help alot.

I ate at subway last night because it was late and there was no food in my fridge. + I owe my buddy some money. I looked up nutrtion facts today, and i just cant find anywhere how subway fits into a cut. Way too many carbs in the bread alone. if you're bulking, i'm sure that's fine.

03-28-2006, 03:23 PM
^^^yeah same problem here, i tried the wraps one time, whoa never do that again. They were horrible. i havent had subway in a while.

03-29-2006, 09:43 PM
With that subway nutrition page located

Does that include the bread?

And i'm guessing veggies are so low in calories they shouldn't be counted?

Looking from a cutting perspective.

03-29-2006, 10:57 PM
^yes, it includes bread. yes the veggies are pretty much not counted, think one green pepper has 30cals in it, you dont even get close to that much at subway.

The Philly Cheese Steak sub has quite a bit of protein, relatively low fat, and is delicious as well.

03-31-2006, 02:05 PM
I hate the cheese steak sub. It doesn't taste right.

03-31-2006, 02:32 PM
I <3 Subway!!!

I either get the Bacon Chicken Ranch (minus the ranch)
The chicken breast sub with pepperjack.

Carbs are high. But its really good!

03-31-2006, 03:22 PM
if you can afford the carbs, add honey mustard instead of the ranch, its awesome.

03-31-2006, 04:34 PM

carbs 47
protein 28
