subway

I ate a footlong subway club on whole wheat with provolone cheese, gr peppers, onions, spinach leaves  and lite mayo.  my question is......how many carbs do I log for the bread?  I was thinking 8 - 10.  Also, what type of cheese would be good for sandwiches?  I tried fat free American - that's not going to work for me.  I had heard or read somewhere that white cheese has less fat than yellow.

Here is what the Subway website says...............I have good control and can eat a 1/2 of a 6 inch with no problem.....they will make any sandwich into a salad....plus you can pile on the veggies.

Watch out for the fat free cheeses....they usually have more carbs. I personally don't eat low fat, I just limit how much total fat I have each day.

Re: subway

92 carbs and over 400 calories.  One slice of bread has at least 15 carbs in it.

 

Most fast-food places have websites that give the nutirional content of all their menu items.  Sometimes it's a little hard to find (they don't really want you to know) but it's there if you dig around.

 

Subway sandwiches, for the most part, are not diabetic friendly. :smileysad:

As GrannyRed showed, it is more like 80-100 than 8-10.

 

More importantly, what does your meter say at your peak after you eat it?

Re: subway

Sue,  Subway will make your sandwich without the bread.  Or eat around it. Yeah its messy. But I have perfected the fine art of eating a sanwich using the bread as a holder for the middle.  I only eat a bite or two of the bread.  This applies to burgers as well.  Eat the middle, hold the bun!

Re: subway

"Healthy" doesn't always translate to good for a person with diabetes.  What may be a wonderful lunch...and 500 calories for lunch is not unreasonable...if that lunch is too high in carbs, then it's not for us.  Next time get a 6 inch, eat the filling with a fork (I always carry a set of silverware in my purse) and eat 1/2 the bun.  Test Test Test...that's the only way you'll know if Subway is out completely or if you can do it i moderation.

A "foot long" piece of bread - it is a rare diabetic who can fit that much bread into their meal plan for a single meal.

 

This is a perfect example of why we advocate reading labels and nutritional information for restaurants as well as testing to see how a meal affects us.

 

I travel for work and eat out 90% of the time. I almost always remove half the bread in a sandwich or eat the burger without the bun. I get the flavors I want and keep my carbs in control.

Re: subway

You badly underestimated the amount of carbs in a Subway sandwich, but I think you might also be off-track on cheese.  Usually "low-fat" versions of food use starches to give the same consistancy as the "real" stuff.

 

Yes, I know there are books and websites and doctors saying that you need to fight D with "low-fat", but they are wrong.  It's fine to eat less fatty foods, but it's never good to substitute other things for fat.
