Subway-Healthy Hero or Cholesterol Criminal?
People today say that for one of the healthiest meals around, you should go to Subway. But is Subway good for you? The authors of “Eat This, Not That” say that Subway’s tuna sandwiches contain a huge amount of fatty mayonnaise. Mayo is packed with cholesterol which causes atherosclerosis and intense weight increase. Research also shows that many people consumed more calories at Subway than they did at McDonalds. Experts speculate that people did this because they felt more freedom to eat fats and cholesterol, because they figured it would be less bad for them.
The famous Subway sandwiches are not the only unhealthy part of this savory sandwich shop. Many people who buy Subway products also buy a packet of chips as a side. However, these chips can be deep fried and salty, and large amounts of salt are capable of causing strokes and heart disease. Salt and sugar are never far apart from each other in restaurants, and Subway is no different. The fountain drinks that are served there can include huge amounts of caffeine, sugar, and the dreaded high fructose corn syrup (yuck). These sodas are tasty, and give you a temporary burst of energy, but they last for a very short amount of time, and within the next few hours you will need another blast of sugar. These sugars can increase a person’s weight, cause skin disease, and generally put your body in a horrible state.
In short, Subway sandwiches are delicious, but some are full of fatty poisons, and if you can, avoid the chips, and instead of soda buy some milk.
