Is Subway good for you?

  1. Relatively healthy, sure. The nitrates and preservatives aren't great for over all health but from a nutritionally dense caloric perspective, yes. Load it with vegetables and it isn't much difference than a salad with bread on the side.

    It's as much a type of food as McDonalds or KFC. You can make a submarine sandwich at home as you can make burgers, fried chicken etc. and it won't be anywhere near the same nutritional values as that other crap which to me represents their "type" of food. All fast foods have a certain taste they go for and recipes they patent which makes them each a type of food.

  3. Lol, of course, I should've read replies before responding. I suppose if you have high blood pressure nitrates "could" be beneficial according to the study in question. Otherwise it's a moot point.

    But yeah, if you're looking at Subway loaded with veggies vs. McDonalds with maybe a single slice of tomato, minimal onions and two, tiny pickle slices subway offers more bang for the buck.

    your post made no sense. are you saying since this food is being served at an eating establishment and not your home it is somehow "bad" for you?

  12. Yep.

    The submarine sandwich that Subway hung it's namesake on can be made in a healthier fashion than the restaurant puts out.

    Compared to Wendy's, Subway is healthier for reasons previously discussed though the types of foods Wendy's is synonymous with (hamburgers and chicken breast sandwiches) can be made healthy at home.

    This is what Mike said, don't play a coy, pre-pubescent chick role. It isn't becoming.

    The product fast food chains put out and call food is synonymous with their brand or name. Therefor a submarine sandwich from subway is not just a sub it's a subway sandwich and unlike other subs from other chains or delis. They create their own product which is basically consistent of the lowest quality ingredients while maintaining the flavor profile they construct in their labs to maintain cost efficiency in the worst way. They don't care what goes in your body so long as you believe it's the healthier choice when in reality you're eating more chemicals and by products then you'd dream of with the thought in your head that "it couldn't be that bad cus its so simple".
    It sounds like you are the demographic they look to sell too so enjoy your footlong of lies. You may as well shove that 12 inches up your ass since your getting fuked when you consume their product anyway.
    Open your eyes a little wider and you'll find mom n pop delis or if you have to even grocery chains that'll make a healthier sub for ya.

    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....

    ..........:-)

  19. 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.
