Can you guess what the fattest sandwich is, that Subway sells, out of these?
Without further ado, here's the result copied carefully from "The SUBWAY chain Nutrition Guide":
|Serving Size (g)||Calories (kcal)||Total Fat (g)|
|Chipotle Southwest Cheese Steak||271||411||17|
|Chicken & Bacon Ranch||309||483||20|
Wow! Who would believe that Tuna would be the fattiest Subway sandwich? Not me for sure.
Notice that the servings are slightly different sizes in grammes. What if we recalculate the table to see calories and total fat per gramme and lets now sort the table by fattest.
|Chicken & Bacon Ranch||156.31||6.47|
|Chipotle Southwest Cheese Steak||151.66||6.27|
So Tuna isn't the "fattest" sandwich per weight but don't think that because you're "just getting the tuna" means that you're being healthier than when you chose a Cheese Steak.
Does this mean that Subway sandwiches are unhealthy? No I don't think so. This is just a relative comparison between the various sandwiches they offer. I personally think Subway sandwiches are OK considering the low price they really are for plenty of food and a decent selection of vegetables.Follow @peterbe on Twitter
