    Default 'Subway Guy' Jared Fogle falls off the diet wagon

    Subway Guy Falls Off The Diet Wagon

    Jared Fogle, a.k.a., "the Subway guy" was recently spotted in the Miami airport toting some extra baggage -- and not the kind on two wheels either.

    Nearly a decade ago, we watched in awe when commercials aired about the young 20-year-old college student who lost 245 pounds by eating Subway sandwiches for lunch and dinner every day. Now we're watching again as the sandwich chain's spokesman has apparently fallen off his own diet.

    While he still tweets about eating Subway (wouldn't you if you got free subs?), it appears the Subway guy has taken a break from eating fresh as much as he used to. According to Subway's web site, "Jared still enjoys his favorite SUBWAY sandwich, but has eased himself into eating other foods. He always chooses foods low in fat and limits the amount of alcoholic beverages. He still drinks only "diet" beverages and continues his walking regimen."

    No one can blame a guy for wanting more of a variety of food -- after all, eating subs every day for years had to get kinda boring. But straying too far from his staple of turkey and veggie subs has obviously caused his waistline to spread as quickly as mayonnaise.

    It appears Jared is still visiting schools and events across the country to promote the Jared Foundation which Subway established in 2004 to help fight childhood obesity and encourage kids to lead healthy lifestyles. As part of his presentation, he shows the crowd his iconic 60 inch fat pants. Just two months ago he told the kids at Thurman White Middle School in Nevada that staying healthy and keeping fit are "so important".

    Let's hope those fat pants stay off the Subway guy and the extra toppings around his middle are just a temporary set-back.

    That doesn't look too bad, all things considered.

    And I give Subway huge credit for making affordable $5 subs that are actually low in fat.

    Something about Jared and his Subway schpeil has always irked me. He just gets on my nerves. I also remember hearing that there may have been some stomach stapling or other surgical help to his weight loss.

    Happy trails to you...until we meet again.
    I love & miss you Dad.

    He's actually flying here to Seattle. Subway is the sponsor for the game on Sunday, he is doing promotional stuff at the game.

    He needs to re-focus. There's no reason why he can't relapse and go back to unhealthy ways, which it looks like it's happening now.

    It's a lifelong commitment. If not careful he'll be worse in a few years.

    This^

    And, alot of times gaining some weight back helps you to realise the sacrifice was worth it...as well as incidentally boosting your metabolism.

    I don't know who he is but it's so easy to put a stone or two on and become complacent. Next thing you are back to being huge again so it's important to nip it in the bud as soon as possible.

    Exactly. This guy at work, a few years ago everyone was stunned at how much weight he lost. He was into that weight watchers thing at work. Yet when I see him now, he's as big as he used to be, and I kinda feel bad for him because I know how hard it is to lose that weight. I think he just slowly let himself go.

    It's a lifelong thing, if you are not careful it will bite you back.

    Did anyone see on the 'Biggest Loser' a couple of weeks ago, that one of the former winners gained all his weight back?
