May 11 - Think Subway is healthier than McDonald's? You might be better off getting a Big Mac

Does Jared know about this?
Subway has made a name for itself as the "healthy" fast food chain by touting its lean deli meat sandwiches packed with veggies as an alternative to greasy burgers and fries.
But many people consume just as much sugar, carbs, sodium and overall calories per meal at Subway as they do at its much-maligned competitor, McDonald’s, new research shows.
UCLA scientists sent a group of nearly 100 adolescents aged 12 to 21 to eat at McDonald's and Subway restaurants, then collected their receipts to track what they ordered. Using the nutrition information available on each chain's website, they calculated the nutritional value of what the kids purchased.

While meals at McDonalds averaged 1,038 calories, the Subway meals weren't far behind at 955 calories each. And at 784 calories, the average Subway sandwich purchase came in even higher than those bought at McDonald's, which averaged 582 calories.
The Institute of Medicine recommends 2,400 calories per day for adolescents, researchers noted.

"We found that there was no statistically significant difference between the two restaurants, and that participants ate too many calories at both," public health scholar Dr. Lenard Lesser, who led the study, said in a statement.
The restaurants were strikingly similar by several other measures. Diners ordered 102g of carbohydrates at Subway compared to 128 at McDonald's and 36g of sugar to McDonalds' 54g.

People ate even more sodium at Subway, with 2,149mg compared to 1,829mg at McDonald's. Overconsumption of salt is a growing health crisis for Americans, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has warned, putting children and adults at risk for hypertension, heart disease and obesity. One CDC study found the average kid consumers 3,300mg of salt daily, far more than the recommended 2,300mg.

Subway meals did live up to their health halo in some respects. Subjects purchased sugary drinks at an average of 61 calories at Subway, but gulped 151 calories at McDonald's.
Subway side dishes, such as potato chips, added an average of 35 calories to meals, while McDonald's sides, such as french fries, tacked on 201 calories.
The study doesn't detail the exact meal combinations that were ordered at the restaurants, but it seems clear that many of the Subway diners aren't sticking to the chain's selection of 6-inch sandwiches under 500 calories.

Subway's footlong Big Philly Cheesesteak, for example, clocks in around 1,000 calories and 2560g sodium — roughly double what's in the McDonald's Big Mac, which has 550 calories and 970g sodium.

In the end, it's not where you eat but what you choose off the menu that matters — and eating at Subway is just as likely to make you fat as pulling up to the drive-thru at McDonald's, researchers concluded.

To make meals at either restaurant healthier, skip the sugary drinks, chips and french fries, Lesser advised. At Subway, choose smaller sandwiches with plenty of vegetables.
The study was published online Tuesday in the Journal of Adolescent Health.

UPDATE: Subway Global Dietitian Lanette Kovachi, MS, RD, responded with the following statement: "Regarding the 2011 UCLA study of 87 young adults, we want to clarify a few things. As long time leaders in offering customers healthier options, Subway restaurants has always provided customers nutritional information on all of our menu offerings along with a wide array of great-tasting, low-fat and low-calorie subs and salads. We stand behind our nutritional offerings and continue to make advancements to our menu that meet the evolving tastes of our customers."

Worked at subway for 3 years.


Meat is constantly dropped on floor, bread is dropped on floor. Fruit flies everywhere.

The meat when you actually touch it feels like some sort of liquid concealer around it which feels all fatty and disgusting.

Don't buy into the hype.

Subway is not the largest franchise in the world for no reason.

Big corporations use it as a front
But like the article said, no better than mcdonalds.


Veggie is about it. And I wouldn't even go near that. They don't wash it properly and the bread ur eating it on probably has somebody's a.ss fingers all over it.


People are idiots.

Put fresh in the name and its ok.

Our society is dumber than sh*t

A footling sub and chips is still healthier than a Big Mac and fries.

However sodium is a big issue with preserved meats anywhere. Even the supermarket.

People are too focused on "image"...while not really knowing anything about nutrition. For example, you can get some nuggets and fries at McDonalds, and a Sandwich at Subways. But if at Subways you're adding dressing, cheese, sugary drinks, etc. to your sandwich, it really makes no difference. If anything, you'll have an insulin spike and end up storing fat


That's the thing with a lot of people. They don't actually research and educate themselves. Just follow what they hear

Pretty much.

Plus who would eat at subway if all you could order were 6 inch sandwiches with nothing but turkey and veggies with no soft drinks?

i'm sick of n*ggas like you. Always thinking the sh*tty little project restaurant you worked for is a modicum of the entire chain. I'm not a fast food guy myself but trying to scare people away with outrageous stories is just as much bullsh*t as the food itself. You were probably one of the jerkoffs substituting mayonnaise with sperm at your location, weren't you? Disgruntled a.ss employee. Go off yourself and rid the world of your pathetic little fast food working life you bi*ch.

PS: the food you prepare at home is probably far more disgusting than the sh*t you made at subway. Prick.
