Jared Fogel is the young man you see in the Subway commercials. The Indiana native is visiting different restaurants around the country. Monday, he stopped by a Subway on Highway 49.
Fogel once weighed 425 pounds, and wore size 58 pants, and a size six extra-large shirt. While in college he began going to the nearby Subway. A year later, in February, 1999, while on the Subway diet, he dropped nearly 250 pounds. Fogel says he's telling people, there is a way for them to lose weight. "And I sorta stumbled on the idea of eating Subway sandwiches off the low fat menu twice a day holding the cheese, the mayonnaise and the oil and just letting people know that even if you're not gonna do exactly what I did ya know eating Subway twice a day that if you're gonna have fast food why not try to have a low-fat Subway sandwich instead of the greasy burger, taco or pizza or whatever else and even just doing that will really help you in the long run," Fogle says.
