    Are you using Subways' ****ty ingredients or stepping it up? I bet if you set a Subway next to a Quiznos you could tell a definitely difference, and you're not even talking quality over and above.

    More importantly, you've identified the fact that brands are synonymous with their products.

    I wouldn't eat a damn thing you make. You're having such a hard time understanding this conversation that I'm not convinced you can figure out a sandwich....

    Subway is god awful for you.

    Like mentioned earlier, the bread has more ingredients than you can count. Wheat bread? More like overly processed crap with caramel syrup coloring to make it appear healthy. Stuff is worse than most white breads.

    That grilled chicken breast? Mechanically separated chicken soaked in enough chemicals to kill a horse with grill marks painted on. You mean to tell me that chicken breasts aren't all exactly the same shap and size???!!!!

    Lets use our brains. Do you really think a company is going to profit from a 5 dollar footlong if they are using healthy, fresh ingredients? I think not.

    Still probably better than McDonald's

    I understand what you are trying to say, but your argument is invalid which is leading you to take personal attacks because you cant defend your point

    What's to defend? I made my point and in no way have you challenged it in a way that makes me want to pursue the conversation so I ended it with a joke on you. Your replies are just as Texasguy described them as. If ya can't handle alil heat then don't get your sub toasted.

    Seriously be honest. If you think subway is healthy, you are an idiot. It is simply the lesser of evils when compared to mcdonalds, burger king, etc. Other than that, Subway and healthy should never be mentioned together

    Unhealthy = ****ty processed food, tons of chemicals, preservatives, sugars, etc. We know what unhealthy is. Subway might not be the absolute worst place ever, but it is still very much not good for you.

    Google search the ingredients. Chicken should not have 20 ingredients. Nor should vegetables.

    From a long-term health prospective, probably not, largely because Subway's food is chalked full of additives and preservatives.

    From a bodybuilding, weight lifting perspective, the food isn't that bad for a person on the go, assuming that it fits within your nutritional macros.

    I don't see 20 ingredients for vegetables and go to your local supermarket and pick up a package of deli meat or prepackages meat and you will find the same thing.

    Mike's original argument made sense, your weird semantics attack failed.

    You are not "ripped", simply skinny. Ripped requires low body fat and muscle mass, you only have one part of the equation.

    You have to be trolling.

    Of course other deli meats are going to have the same trash that's not even remotely close to this argument. The argument is whether or not Subway is healthy and it quite simply is not. Processed white bread and garbage, additive laden meat is not healthy period. Of course there are better options or worse options thats not the point. The point is that Subway is not good for you.

    I was wrong on the vegetables and 20 ingredients. Must have seen an incorrect list. However, thats not to say they arent some garbage gmo variety. Who knows there.

    What that list does tell you is that every one of those breads is nothing more than refined white bread and the meats are trash.

    Also, that chicken breast looks remarkably similar to what mechanically separated chicken is. For those of you not familiar, google it and keep a barf bag handy

    Fortunately you can just starve if you're looking for a ratio only. If you want an impressive fat to muscle ratio though, build some muscle before you go throwing composition insults around, especially when they don't even make sense. Google "inference" too.

    The concern over highly processed meat is legitimate and it should've been left at that.

    It's processed and bleached , re-purposed chicken parts pressed into a chicken breast shape to create the illusion of eating a healthy product. Basically what you're eating is a large un-breaded chicken nugget served on a chemical loaf garnished with low cost genetically engineered vegetables. "That's subway fresh"!

    agreed with this and yes I know the meat is grade "A" but its not any worse than deli meat at your local store

    I agree other than maybe top stuff like Boars Head. I never claimed it was any worse. The op just asked if Subway was a healthy meal option or not and it isn't. That is not me saying its the worst stuff in the world, it just isn't healthy

    I've found that a whole chicken on the grill, beer can style preferrably, makes a great sandwhich. You can even buy an organic chicken. Shred it on a whole wheat bun with onion, avocado, tomato and garlic pesto with provolone.

    Roasted pork tenderloin, roast beef, beef tenderloin...

    All of these can be bought whole and made at home, even organic varieties from the bread and veggies to the meat and cheese. The sandwich will absolutely be identifiable from Subway, and healthier. Even on a Submarine style roll.

    well if you guys are looking for organic, non preservative then your food choices are going to be pretty limited anyways and yes subway would not be an option for you then.

    How can this even be a argument !! Subway is shat!! It's all processed crap . Loaded with useless carbs , little to no protein ohh but hey is low in fat ! Haha

    Go get a chicken breast from that dump and break it in half . The damn thing has air pockets in it .

    Plus they are all owned by rude ass people . At least in my neck of the woods .
