recently read the extras that were included with BFFM, Foods that Burn Fat and Foods that Cause Fat. I think that's what they're called, I don't have them with me. Anyway, one of the foods listed as a food you should eat is 100% Whole Wheat Bread. One of the foods listed that you should avoid is non-whole wheat bread.
I loved Subway for a long time. I use to go five times a week or more. But, after reading BFFM and these supplement readings, I've realized the importance of cutting out non-100% whole wheat bread. Why in the world does Subway not offer whole wheat bread? The entire company thrives on its status as the 'healthy' fast food choice. But yet they are missing such an important part.
I wondered how many people were upset about this so I did a google search on 'Whole Wheat Bread Subway'. I found on a few forums, such as Yahoo Answers people asking the question 'Is Subway's bread 100% Whole Wheat?' The answers that were given were 'Yes, if you order the Wheat, its 100% Whole Wheat'. Well, this is wrong. On that particular subject that question was closed, so I couldn't even inform anyone else reading that site, that is not the case. In fact, my friend who worked at subway says that their "wheat" bread is basically their white bread with caramel coloring.
This is why I think Subway isn't offering a whole wheat bread. Why do they need to? Nobody seems to even realize its not whole wheat and Subway isn't informing its customers about how much better 100% whole wheat bread is. Their wheat, by the way, is easily their most popular bread. I can only assume this is because the average customer thinks they are choosing the healthiest bread this way, most likely assuming its whole wheat.
I probablly seem a little overly sensitive about this, but I enjoyed eating subway up to 5 times a week. I've decided to cut out bread that is not 100% whole wheat which means no more Subway. And it seems like such a waste, because otherwise its a great option to get protein, vegetables and a starchy carb all in one easy, tasty package.
I asked my friend who worked at Subway what sub was the most popular at his location. The answer: "Easily Tuna on Wheat". I would guess its another thing people are ordering assuming they are making a healthy decision.
Footlong Tuna Sub on "Wheat"
Calories: 1,060
Fat: 62.0g
Protein: 44g
Carbs: 88g
McDonald's Big Mac
Calories: 540
Fat: 29g
Protein: 25g
Carbs: 45g
And also on my nutrition facts for the tuna remember this is without cheese or sauce. Add cheese it becomes:
Calories: 1,180
Fat: 72.0g
Protein: 52.0g
Carbs: 88.0g
Just a heads up. There are lower fat choices at Subway. Just remember to order off the low fat sub list and leave the cheese off. Still, low fat doesn't mean its good for you, a sandwhich with whole wheat bread would always be better.

Amen to that. Personally I would only eat subway as a last resort. There are healthier choices out there. The first one is make your own sandwich and keep it in a cooler. Not only is it cheaper, but you know whats in it. I dont know why subway doesnt offer 100% whole wheat bread, but its a little weird. Most people are too stupid to pay attention to what they eat, and will stuff anything in their mouth. Why should they care, its only their bodies. For me I will stick with 100% whole wheat without high fructose corn syrup.

Thank you so much for this. My husband and I have recently started paying more attention to what we eat. We were wondering about the wheat bread at Subway specifically. That really is a HUGE dissapointment. There are so many CRAP food chains out there, I was hopeing that Subway was different... guess not.

I don't know where you got your figures from but they are all wrong! Also a footlong sub is about 2 or 3 times as big as a big mac.

CowBoyMouths' figures are incorrect, check out subway's website for correct figures and it is pointless comparing a bigger footlong sub to a smaller big mac.

To answer your question, it's because wholewheat bread would simply break apart once you've added the other weighty ingredients of the sub plus sauce.

Please don't forget that Subway is a product of Americanisation; the infesting plague that tries to worm it's way across the whole world.

Far better to chop the head of the snake off and let it bleed to death. Boycott the USA and let them carry on murdering each other.

F**k America!
