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.

How to Choose a Healthy Subway Order
Try to order a 6-inch sub instead of a foot-long. And if you decide to order a foot-long, request that they wrap them separately. “Drink some water with your first 6-inch and really check in with yourself to see if you are truly hungry for the second half,” Windrow says.
Order nine-grain wheat bread for a bit of extra fiber to help with fullness and satiety.
