    Definitely goes without saying. It's the last resort among last resorts when you need food and are in a situation where those are the only choices. Ill absolutely eat subway again when I have to but only because it is the lesser of the evils.. That is, unless theres a chipoltle around. Just knowing what I know about their food and its contents I can't willfully go and grab a subway sandwich and be satisfied . Not to mention I always have to dump after eating one and no matter who you are you're gonna be hungry an hour later.

    After skimming this thread, I can definitively say that Subway definitively does screw up your testosterone:estrogen ratio-whether you eat it or not!
    There is a whole lot of roid raging and PMS'ing going on here.

    Seriously, we are talking about a freaking fast food joint--not abortion, global warming, or world peace.
    It never ceases to amaze me how much passion we can put into truly pointless issues.

    Not to mention the fact that it is flawed to view a restaurant or a food as "healthy" in toto.
    There are no "healthy" or "unhealthy" foods, but that is a separate debate

    Okay. Lets get our sticks removed from our asses. If your thinking of fast food places to eat chances are subway isn't your only one.

    Lets throw that out the window. Take a look at your grocery list and all of the ingredients in all of your food. Chances are if you shop at Walmart and buy great value or another genetic store's brand your putting your body at risk.

    My philosophy is the 90/10 mentality. 90% best effort nutrition and 10 % who gives a ****. If I want subway I don't eat it every day I eat it maybe once a MONTH !

    Pretty much all fast food is worse for your body than an MRI but you can't live in fear.

    Just my. 02 cents.

    Yup 2009 that's back when subway was completely organic. Organic pesticide free vegetables, grassfed beef, hormone free chickens. Yup, the good old days.

    Not only is it not healthy, but the sandwiches taste mediocre at best and they never put enough meat on them, unless you ask for extra meat and then they charge you extra. I would rather just order a "fatty" sub with fries from a local sub place. It wouldn't be the healthiest choice, but it would be better than subway. At least you would get a decent amount of meat.

    This being said I just drank beer on the lake all day and drunk crushed a 12 piece family meal that was all thighs, 6 biscuits covered in honey, large sweet tea, cole slaw, and mashed potatoes and gravy, and one fried peach pie. Now that is the pinnacle of health

    I appreciate the fact that it is a discussion, but also one that has rapidly devolved into some heated and rather dogmatic positions.

    By there being no "healthy" or "unhealthy foods" I mean that "healthiness" is not some quality that magically attaches to food itself. A food's (or food purveyor's) "healthyness" is a relative concept and must be considered relative to one's overall diet.

    To view foods as dichotomously healthy or unhealthy is painfully simplistic and unhelpful.

    But what do I know, I am just another "skinny douche"

    Correct me if I am wrong, but what you are saying is that it is relative to overall diet. So if I eat nothing but candy bars and cokes, than eating pizza and gatorade is essentially healthy because it is better than the diet of candy bars and soda? If that is what you are saying then I think that is a bit ridiculous.

    Food definitely is healthy or not healthy. A candy bar doesn't become healthy because it is relative to something else. It is unhealthy period. Health is not a relative thing.

    I get what you are saying if you mean that something can be healthier in a relation to another option. For example, someone who only eats mcdonald's and then steps it up to Subway is making a healthier decision. However, that still doesn't make the subway healthy because it is better than mcdonalds. At the end of the day they are both crap. One just isn't quite as ****ty as the other.

    A solid turd is better than projectile runs from and upset stomach. But at the end of the day, they are both still ****

    I agree in essence, but my central point is that individual foods are neither healthy nor unhealthy.
    One needs to evaluate the entire diet.

    If someone eats fast food regularly-regardless if the source, their diet is highly likely to be less healthy than someone attempting to make more informed choices with meals prepared at home/ahead of time.

    I simply think that evaluating single foods or even classes of foods on the healthy/unhealthy dichotomy is rather useless and overly simplistic.

    There are definitely better and best options which is the basis of this thread. The dichotomy doesn't rest on an endless continuum.

    If your BMR is 2000 calories and you eat 1500 calories a day in twinkies you will lose a pound a week. Same as the moron obese idiot from those subway adds. Chummy buttons lost all that weight eating subway but he just looks like a less fat version of himself. He could have got the same results eating clean foods and hitting the gym. He would actually resemble a man and not false leading the majority of this fat ass nation into thinking that crap will help you lose weight.


    This stuff is in the Healthy wheat bread :

    Azodicarbonamide as used in plastics, synthetic leather .The principal use of azodicarbonamide is in the production of foamed plastics as an additive. The thermal decomposition of azodicarbonamide results in the evolution of nitrogen, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and ammonia gases, which are trapped in the polymer as bubbles to form a foamed article.


    Yummy!!

    Ok so you meant that evaluating the diet as a whole is the important factor? That makes a lot more sense and I agree on judging the diet as a whole as opposed to a single meal thats just common sense

    Those are called pecs . You get those by lifting weight so they get big and full so you can't see the front of your rib cage, aka bird chest.
