The Best and Worst Sandwiches to Order at Subway
Eating on the go can make it hard to stay within the FDA's recommended 2,000 calorie per-day diet, especially if you often find yourself needing to eat at fast food restaurants.
And while sandwich chain Subway offers alternatives to burgers and fries, what if all those times you thought you were making a healthy choice by dining at Subway, you might as well have been chowing down on a Big Mac?
FACTORS TO CONSIDER WHEN ORDERING HEALTHY AT SUBWAY
The type of bread and additional toppings you choose will affect how many calories your Subway sandwich will contain.
One of the big factors to consider in ordering smart at Subway is sodium content — excessive sodium intake increases blood pressure, and puts people at high risk for conditions such as stroke and heart failure.
With such serious risks, the American Heart Association (AHA) recommends no more than 1,500 mg of sodium per day, but Subway's worst footlong subs contain more than double that amount. The Footlong Breakfast B.M.T Melt, for example, contains 3,200 mg of sodium. (That's far worse than the biggest breakfast at McDonalds, the Big Breakfast with Hotcakes, which has 2,150 mg of sodium.)
But all is not lost at Subway. With a variety of healthy options and ingredients including avocado, lean proteins and a variety of vegetables, they are plenty of ways to create your own healthy (and tasty) sub sandwich.
So to help people order smart and cut down on calories and sodium intake, we explored the nutrition information at Subway to find the three worst six-inch subs. And it's worth mentioning that footlongs across the board are unwise choices!
