Subway – Eat Fresh?

I finally figured out a possible reason why Jared—Subway’s poster child for phenomenal weight loss—had reportedly lost a record 245 pounds in a short period of time. The answer [perhaps] lies in this mathematical equation. Contaminated food + an innocent food patron – a substantial amount of bodily fluid = food poisoning.

Last week, after eating a breakfast sandwich at Subway, I was sick for three [darn] days! Within minutes of eating the sandwich, I knew something was terribly wrong. First, I felt a knot in my stomach. Then, I felt bloated. Later, I became nauseous.

In 24 hours, as medically stated, I had all the symptoms of food poisoning. The foodborne illness had caused nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, headache, fever and ultimately a substantial weight loss.

If my mathematical equation is correct, then, more power to Mr. Jared, on his Subway sandwich secret weight loss. After all, you know what they say about results, no pain, no gain, right?

Nonetheless, I am a fitness fanatic who will continue to “eat fresh,” sadly, not at Subway. Well, at least not for a while.

Miss Pruedhomme long time no see. This is the bike boy. I been real quite since we've met. If your still going to that gym over by the penta place, I could have told you that. I found a rouch in my salad. Then they tried to treat me like a second class citizen when I brought it back asking for my money. Sue there ass because I didn't. I just did'nt got time for all the legal bull. Bigger fish I need frying. But thats the way things go when people don't say anything. I did call corprate to post a complaint and got no reply. Didn't have the energy to invest in it. I wish I had.

Having been in marketing for a number of years, I am well aware of the tricks that are played to lure consumers. It's amazing how the food in the ads are airbrushed among other things to make them look more colorful. Even to the extent of painting. I have yet to come across a McDonalds, Burger King, Checkers, or Wendy's ANYTHING that looks like it does in the ads. So I am not surprised by your thoughts concerning Jared's weight loss. (LOL) It's too bad you had to suffer the pangs and pains of food poisoning. Probably was a leftover ingredient or something that was not put away correctly in the refrigerator. I hope you let the store management know and knowing you I am sure that you did. Keep talking truth.

Sorry to hear about the food poisoning!! I hope you're feeling better now. Did you make the restaurant aware of your situation?
I have to tell you, this happened to Brianna when she was about 3 (Chinese food) and I took it all the way to the county level. I had the facility inspected on two seperate occasions.
However, I had Chinese for the 1st time again after 10 years-- last year! ;-)
