Yea i like subways and eat there alot.

If you want to loose the weight, then ditch the cheese/mayo from your sandwich. Also ditch the soda.

I've been buying a lot of sammiches from them lately. Do they REALLY have any noticable impact on weight after a while without exercise? That just seems fishy to me if somebody made that claim.

I agree that I like eating quizno's a lot more. But I hate spending $13 on a meal there.

With all that said though, and am going to put a huge period on the end of this name.  Potbelly's. If you have not eaten there, go, order a "wreck" thank me. If you never have heard of them or do not have them in your area, I pity you, you poor poor soul.

A club (hold the mayo, cheese and oil) with a bag of baked Lays and a diet Coke is actually pretty low on Calories. It works, but man...you get really tired of eating sandwiches real quick.

A combo at Subway with a 12" sub is a least $6 probably more like $7.  I'll spend the extra $1 for edible food.

BTW Quiznos has 2.99 small subs just like Subway does.

5 days at subway X $7~/daily for lunch = $35
---------------------------------------------------

Wheat bread loaf- $1

Nicley cut meats from deli- $4-8 lb.

Assorted veggies- $2

Low fat dressing- $2

Drink- Water! $0.25 /gal.

So we'll be generous and call it $15-

It would be a lot cheaper buying groceries and preparing your own meals. Choose exactly what and how much you want. But if you really want to lose weight, curb the starchy bread all together.

I guess it comes down to taking the time to shop, 15minutes, and time to prepare, 1 minute daily.

But would you rather have:

1. subway for 5 days
or
2. own sammichs and lets say, 2 new ar15 magazines?

The Subway diet is sheer genius.  

Typical overweight person trys it, starts with a 6" turkey sub without cheese or mayo.  Then, a week later they start pounding a foot long meatball with double cheese everyday, fooling themselves into thinking it is diet food.

Where the heck are you shopping?

Any of the grocery stores around here have the absolute cheapest ham, on sale at maybe, MAYBE $4.99 a lb.  Typical ham is $6.99, roast beef 7.99-9.99, turkey 7.99, and cheeses are about the same as beef.

I sure as heck could not make 5 days worth of sandwiches with one pound of generic ham.

I went to the store and got meat and cheese to make sandwiches for a week and I left the deli counter with about a $27 bill

I only spend $4.29 at Subway for lunch. X5= $21.45 and don't have to drink water and I get chips. Sounds like a better deal to me.

Local store is:

turkey 4.99 and up
ham 4.99 and up
roast beef 6.99 and up
cheese is around 5, dont buy it often, so i dont exactly know
And that's the deli meat. And one could go the route of pre packages, processed lunch meats for 4 a pound. My grocery store has them on sale right now for 3.99/lb, normally 4.99/lb, but it's just like eating salt so I don't bother. But it is another option.

obviously the better stuff is more expensive. but it's resonable. Also I shop at a mom and pop Italian deli shop that has very good prices.

The op's goal is to lose weight by eating subway 5x a week. So that's 5 lunches. And if he wants to lose weight 1 lb of lunch meat should suffice for 5 lunchs. Unless he makes 3-4 sandwiches per meal, which would defeat his goal. But 1/5 lb per sandwich is plenty enough. And if that's not enough, he could certainly add an apple, orange, banana, can of yogurt, almonds, etc to complete his meal.

Like anything else, the key should be moderation (I write this as I am eating a jumbo chocolate chip cookie) However I am on weight watchers, and know that I can indead eat a cookie, because I know how many points it is, I just have to cut out something later for dinner. I HIGHLY recomend weight watchers.

I also drink cherry zero, and to me it tastes like the real thing.


Good luck though

If you really want to drop weight and prep for the sandbox start jogging in sweat pants and sweatshirt in the middle of the afternoon.  You'll sweat your butt off and shed pounds pretty fast.

6" sub and a big glass of water will hold me over for about 2-3 hours until I can get another 200-300 cals in me to hold me over before dinner.
