PLUS: Healthy Sandwiches to Order From Popular Fast Food Chains

Dietitians pick the worst Subway sandwiches, which are high in sodium, saturated fat, and calories 

EAT THIS, NOT THAT – Subway quickly gained a rap of being one of the healthier fast-food chains thanks to its vast vegetable offerings and customization options.

The fact that Subway is not only customizable, but you can stand directly in front of your server while he/she is preparing your food to make any requests you may want is a huge bonus in terms of ‘fast food,’ says Jaime Windrow, RD, CSSD, with Top Nutrition Coaching.

Still, there are many ways to easily rack up the calories in your sandwich order if you’re not mindful, which is why we gathered information on seven of the unhealthiest Subway orders.

The Unhealthiest Subway Orders

  4. The Beast Sub
  5. The Boss Sub
  6. Buffalo Chicken Sub
  7. Big Hot Pastrami Sub
