OK, how many other people hate Jared of Subway?
Ever since seeing this guy in Supersize Me (which I think is highly exagerated, BTW), this guy is just starting to get annoying. I mean, this guy's entire claim to fame is losing a few hundred pounds, and attributing it to Subway, which is of course completely rediculous. I guess I should be mad at Subway for ruthlessly pimping this marketing scheme for the last several years, but he's just as guilty. Plus, he just has that kind of face and voice that I want to knock out!
For those that haven't seen Supersize me, Jared is basically giving a subway sponsored diet lecture at a school or convention center or something, and when after the show an obese young girl asks for honest diet advice, she is convinced that her situation is hopeless because she cannot afford Jared's advice of eating a 100% subway diet (the "only" way to do it, of course).
Anyone else just want to clobber this guy? :b

Alright, I'll punch him once, where does he live?
He gets paid to tell people what he was told, if somebody really thinks the "Subway diet" is the only way (if it's a way ) then they are idiots and it's their problems. I love Subway, btw.

I say more power to him. He is making some $$$ on a gimmic....the American way.
BUT.....I see why he is annoying to you. Eating at subway and lose weight is total BULL****!! He makes it sound as if a sub sandwich is a fat burner. I hear people at work talk about that and I want to punch THEM. You don't hear anything about how he used to eat at McD's everyday and sit on his fat ass eating Bon-Bons in front of the TV and then decided to start working out one day....oh yeah.....and eat a sub sandwich everyday. I'd like to see his before and after caloric expenditure and intake prior to the Subway gimic.

Who really cares?. Anyone stupid enough to believe that marketing bull**** gimic is a retard. Be happy for him, he is making money after losing all that fat. I'm sure Subway pays him a lot better then the "Sandwhich Artists". I'm really getting sick of seeing those damn commericials though!. They make me want to eat a cheeseburger!. Not any fast food crap though. They just make me want to stay away from Subway personally!.

Jared is a perfect example of how severely cutting calories can affect someone who has previously had little to no physcial activity and a horrible diet. He lost all that weight due to increased exercise and decreased intake. It has little to do with it being Subway. In fact, if you've noticed his weight tends to fluctuate greatly from commercial to commercial. Some ads they've had to have him wear baggier clothing or frame him a certain way to make him look thinner. I firmly believe that this is because Subway sandwiches, despite some of them being low in fat, are filled with all the things that don't belong in your diet. Would you like me to post the ingredient list for their "Chicken breast patty" alone? Here goes.
CHICKEN BREAST PATTY Chicken breast with rib meat, water, seasoning (corn syrup solids, vinegar powder [maltodextrin, modified corn starch & tapioca starch, dried vinegar], brown sugar, salt, dextrose, garlic powder, onion powder, chicken type flavor [hydrolyzed corn gluten, autolyzed yeast extract, partially hydrogenated soybean oil and cottonseed oil, thiamine hydrochloride, disodium inosinate & disodium guanylate]), sodium phosphate. May contain: soy sauce powder [fermented soybeans, wheat, salt], lemon juice solids, dextrin, natural flavors [including smoke flavor], flavor [from partially hydrogenated cottonseed and soybean oil], partially hydrogenated soybean oil, hydrolyzed soy protein, citric acid, caramel color, vinegar solids), modified food starch, dextrose, caramel color. Contains soy and wheat.
Ok, what the heck is that? Where is the frickin' chicken? Shall I dissect the 36 or so ingredients in that "chicken patty"?
maltodextrin - white powder filler used as a low glycemic sweetener, extracted from corn, contains low amounts of free glutamate by process
"chicken type flavor" - ok, you tell me how the following remind you of chicken:
* hydrolyzed corn gluten - extract of corn, superheated to improve digestibility, contains varying amounts of free glutamate by process
* autolyzed yeast extract - modified yeast, contains varying amounts of free glutamate by process
* disodium inosinate/disodium guanylate - flavor enhancers which work synergistically with MSG/free glutamic acid, not cost effective except where MSG-like substances are present
So a bunch of corn and yeast with synthetic flavor enhancers tastes like chicken?
soy sauce - extracted from fermented soy and wheat, contains varying amounts of free glutamate by process
hydrolyzed soy protein - extract of soy, superheated to improve digestibility, contains varying amounts of free glutamate by process
modified food starch - food starch (usually corn starch) chemically restructured for various specific industrial food preparation purposes, a thickener and flavor enhancer, typically contains medium amounts of free glutamate by process
smoke flavor - artifical flavoring, typically created through process that releases some free glutamate
Now you understand why a Subway chicken patty (and any typical fast food "chicken product") does not resemble the properties of actual chicken. It's all filler. Worse, the fillers and artificial "flavor enhancers" used all have in common one thing: They all are known to contain varying amounts of free glutamate, the "G" in MSG, which has been linked to numerous disorders and is currently the subject of research as a causative factor in such neurological conditions as Alzheimer's. MSG fools your taste buds into thinking something tastes better than it actually does. Hypothesis: The human body is not made to digest complex artificial chemical structures such as those in modified foods such as these. Therefore, the best theory is that most of the ingredients are indigestible, and are thus excreted through the intestines, or absorbed, turned into fat and who knows what other damaging substances in the body.
Even if you disagree with my above hypothesis, I think it becomes obvious by the length of the ingredient list that it's better to get some fresh chicken breast (not the brands "enhanced by up to a 15% solution" either) and fire up the Foreman grill. I bet even Jared could go for some real food by now.

MMM, sounds good to me. If anyone knows anything about MRE's this sounds awfully familiar to the chicken breast patty MRE. Great...if you're in the field! Subway sucks ass. And I doubt Jared cares. I think Subway has hooked him up with free subs for life from what I understand.Originally Posted by Brooklyn

Me too. He doesn't look healthy to me and Subway is not the best thing in the world to eat day in and day out.
07-14-2005, 07:02 AM
Yeah he's annoying as hell and I saw what he said in Supersize me and it made me sick. I understand he's making a buck but come on.
Speaking of his manboobs did anyone ever see the bowflex ( i think) commercial where the guy basically says "you can lose weight by eating fast food subs but then you don't see that guy with his shirt off" how F$##$ true is that Shiat!
07-14-2005, 10:23 AM
hahaha...yeah I saw the before...lol. Bowflex still suck ass though....just not as much as subway.Originally Posted by jminis

Maybe Jared should get some Raloxifene or Rebound XT for his problem. That guy is a pile of flab. I can see the thread now, "I got gyno from Subway"
07-14-2005, 11:50 AM
I didn't know he was in that, I thought it was only about that guy who mcdonalds for a month straight. Maybe I'll have to watch it now.Originally Posted by jminis
BTW, I'd love to see Jared get knocked out, but then again, I'd rather have the money he's making.
07-14-2005, 02:17 PM
As I remember, only about half the movie was about his Mcdonalds diet (he wouldn't have done so bad had he used a little more common diet sense on this one), but the other half was full of interesting fast food trivia and facts. I think anyone with an interest in nutrition should see it. Of course being educated in these things we can pick out the exagerated BS when watching as well, lol.Originally Posted by shatfield

Very interesting, now I want to watch it. I just thought it was the guy going through his daily routine eating mcd's. I think everyone should have to watch something like that, regardless if you know about nutrition or not.
07-14-2005, 03:43 PM
Did you guys see hte part about the chicken Mcnuggets? They basically put the whole chicken in a grinder and it turns it into this gristle ****...eww...after that they bread it and then ship it off.....soooooo nazty. I won't eat Mickey D's ever again after watching that. whenever I go out and eat fast-food which is rare btw, I normally go to Wnedy's and get a grilled chicken salad w/ ranch dressing...those are pretty good IMO.
07-14-2005, 03:59 PM
True, subway is ****.
I think even some ****ty restaurants use fake chicken. It sucks that you can't even get real food anymore. It is all processed to hell and back.
07-14-2005, 04:01 PM
It's cheaper to make that way. At the same time prices rise, thus the profit margin is increased that much more. Anything for a profit huh. The fast food industry is filled with scumbags.Originally Posted by Ibanez

How do you figure Bowflex sucks ass?. Its still resistance exercise, and you can't really cheat using it. You have to use perfect form, no need for a spotter either. I do prefer going to the gym, but Bowflex is a great machine.Originally Posted by lifted

07-14-2005, 07:55 PM
lol, I've used bowflex before....the bows are all cheaply made and the thing gets "jerky" after awhile....no more smooth motion....they're cheaply made, overpriced pieces of garbage. You can do so much better for the same price and buy a regular olympic free weight system.Originally Posted by T-Bone

I agree that Subway food is not the best choice in the world; or even good for you, processed, nitrate laden, etc.
However, when you consider that most people in this country (US) eat McDonalds, Pizza Hut, chinese food, etc. day-in-and-day-out, then Subway most often cetainly makes a better choice. Basically, like Bowflex, I'm glad there are 'healthier' options for people who don't know enough to know what to 'really' do... but yet have an interest in getting healthy, etc.
Oh, and BTW -- I never cared for Jared or the Subway commercials in the least until I saw the 'Senate commitee' ad where they question Jared about his 'significant changes' to his body and if he used any 'substances.' Of course, he said, 'Yes.' And then referred to Subway sandwiches. The whole thing seemed to me to make fun of the proceedings, which were ridiculously conducted by people asking questions who needed more info before going in. Anyway, that's one mark in the good column for Subway and Jared. LOL.

Hate to break it to you.. but that ain't chicken either.whenever I go out and eat fast-food which is rare btw, I normally go to Wnedy's and get a grilled chicken salad w/ ranch dressing...those are pretty good IMO.
Wendy's Diced Chicken:
Chicken breast with Rib Meat, Water, Seasoning (Salt, Dextrose, Maltodextrin, Natural and Artifical Flavoring [Wheat Flour, Egg, Soybean], Autolyzed Yeast Extract, Sugar, Fructose, Onion, Disodium Guanylate and Inosinate [flavor enhancers]), Corn Starch Modified, Soy Protein Concentrate, Sodium Phosphates (stabilizers), Fructose.
...to say little of what's in the Ranch dressing. I challenge anyone to find a single fast food "chicken" product which is just made of chicken. I bet you can't. Wendy's hamburgers, for the record, are simply ground beef and salt.

I never said it was, I just like the taste...and it's still healthier than most fastfood items....unless the salad part is also synthetic...Originally Posted by Brooklyn

The only reason people lose weight by eating Subway is because they're cheap as ****ing hell with the meat and toppings. One time I went and the guy laid two slices of turkey end to end on my sandwich. I'm not a big fan of eating like ****, but my opinion is if you're going to eat unhealthy do it right. Get a 3/4 pound grilled angus jalapeno burger or something. Hell, throw in a whole wheat bun and skip the fries and have a baked yam instead and it's not even that bad of a meal.
07-15-2005, 12:47 PM
"atkins" was starting to really cut into the bread related industry, so they had to come back with something. as insulting as this dietary bs is to us, the masses don't know much better i guess. i can't eat that chemical soaked moulded meat product anymore myself.
07-15-2005, 12:48 PM
...mmm i love mcdonalds and subway i don't care what they are made of .. to me .. they are made of pure DELICIOUSNESS
