Embracing a Healthy Family: Subway & Biggest Loser: Great Deals & Inspiration

Subway & Biggest Loser: Great Deals & Inspiration


I posted what is below earlier in the week and wanted to update it as with my latest weight loss challenge, I'm fully committed after reading a few books, continuing my addiction to Biggest Loser and just wanting to have more energy and feel good.

Yesterday for lunch, my daughter told me about the 280 calorie turkey 6" sub.  Given that I'm counting calories and wanting something with a multi-grain or whole wheat bread, this was the perfect choice for me.  What's great about the 6" subs is you can cut them in half and graze on them for a few hours.  Grazing is the name of the game from what I'm reading in several books.

What I found while reviewing the Subway site is that they actually do compliment their products with the advice of a dietitian and a nutrition specialist.  There is a page dedicated to nutrition, advice and videos: http://www.subway.com/subwayroot/MenuNutrition/index.aspx.

I was insprired by Jared but never really jumped on the bandwagon as I'm a yo-yo Atkins girl which would leave Subway out most of the time but I am a carb craver so having the 9 grain bread is excellent for my tastes.

If you are like me, you need inspiration and motivation.  I prefer getting my motivation from watching the Biggest Loser who is always touting the benefits of Subway.  This diet, I'm giving Subway a chance.






My biggest TV vice is The Biggest Loser and I'm addicted!  If you watch the show, you know that they team up with Subway for their meals at times.  Subway has a deal right now where you can download a free Biggest Loser workout mix.

You can even join the Pound for Pound Challenge and raise money for charity by going here: http://www.pfpchallenge.com/

Last season's winner, Shay, is the big challenger with Subway to lose the rest of her weight.  Shay had a sad story growing up with an addicted mother who later died prematurely.  Shay turned to food and was the largest woman in Biggest Loser history. For every pound Shay loses, Subway will give her $1,000!

As part of Subway's path to helping more lose weight, their site is full of inspirational zones to get you off to the right start:  http://www.subwayfreshbuzz.com/biggestloser/shay_press_release.asp
