Subway Tuna eaters help!!!!!!!


Quote  |  Reply

I got a tuna sub on wheat today for lunch with no cheese.

 

The website says 530 calories

Tuna: Tuna salad made with mayonnaise, cheese and standard vegetables.

Here's what the breakup is(I think)

200( bread)+30(cheese)+30(vegetables)+270(tuna salad)= 530

I asked for just one scoop of tuna(they usually put 2)

So by my calculations the calorie count should be

200(wheat bread)+ 30 (vegetables)+270/2=135(tuna salad) =365

Am I estimating this correctly???

Here's the exact nutrition breakdown (if you live in the US):

http://subway.com/subwayroot/MenuNutrition/Nu trition/pdf/NutritionValues.pdf

Go to pages 3-5 and it breaks down the cheese, bread, veggies, etc separately.

EDIT: Here's where I think your sandwich was at:

200 (bread) + 130 (tuna/2) + 25-30 (veggies if you get all of them) = 355-360

Thanks... that link was great!!!

I have a serious gripe with the Tuna subs at Subway, the standard use to be use the low-fat mayo (which I have always liked much better then the other), but then they decided to change it and now it is made with the regular mayo, which is more rich and less healthy.  I still to this day do not agree with this decision by Subway, but on the other hand I understand why they did from a business aspect as the regular mayo is quite a bit cheaper by case then the light.

They still use light mayo for it most European countries.  I don't think that regular mayo is even a condiment you can get, at least not any of the stores I have been in Germany or UK.  The strange thing for my local Subway was they didn't have plain mustard for a while because not many people wanted it.  I guess a few other mustard lovers and me had asked enough because they have it again.  Laughing

i also used to ALWAYS order the tuna sub w/ salt n vinager chips (pre-diet days) it was light mayo back then tho.

now, you cant even consider it as a healthy choice. it is actually one the higher calorie sandwiches they offer. it's the enemy!

i just make my own and bring it to work. i only eat the subway club/wheat/no cheese/spinach & tons of veggies/mustard only.

and only occasionally because the bread has way to many carbs in it (i dont like the wrap thing they offer, tastes like raw dough)

it's messed up the united states promotes obesity so blatantly!!! europe has it right. you really cant eat out anywhere (very few choices) if you care about calories/low fat.

 

I have never been able to make decent tunafish and have always loved tunafish when Im out, Subway being a favorite.

Personally Im a bit suspicious of the calorie chart on the tuna.  Unfortunately for me, one of the things I discovered is the reason I like it out is they always had so much more mayo than I used - I realized this when adding more mayo made me like it more at home.

When I say Im suspicious, I dont doubt when the tested the original it was legit but these companys are always doing testing with survey groups and Im thinking a lab test might not support the calorie claims - not to be a downer since Ive no evidence but a strong suspicion based on how mayonaise-y their tuna is.

I never could stomach Subway tuna salad - the two times I had it, it was so bland I had to add mustard to make it edible.  And it was made with way too much mayonaisse, even if it was the "light" stuff.

Since I've made up my own tuna salad using pesto and mixing in a lot of chopped veggies, I don't think I'll ever go back to mayo-based tuna salad again.

It is funny you mention that as light mayo was the only mayo for the longest time, there was no regular mayo, then all of a sudden they decided to bring it in our district and it became the standard for what the tuna salad was made with.  I loved it when it was the light mayo, but now stay away from it like the plague.  Personally, when I was eating mayo on my subs I would always opt for the light at the Subways because I never got use to the richness of the regular and have always enjoyed the light. 


As for the mustard thing, that is odd, but I guess it makes sense if they think there is not a demand for it.  Glad to hear it is back as it is a great fat free alternative.

That would make sense.  I used to live in the US and ate the tuna subs most of the time I would go to Subway.  I only really like that and the Veggie Delight.  I started using the calorie count and went to enter it in and it was about 100 calories more than I expected so I looked at the Subway UK website and it was in fact a bit more than 100 less than the one listed here.  I poked around on the websites and figured it out because it was the British was made with light mayo.  I always thought it tasted the same here (well, the bread is better in the UK, but I mean the topping) so it makes sense that is how it used to be.  It has been 4 or 5 years that I had gone to Subway in the US.  It is sad that you don't have the choice of light mayo for the tuna and knowing it is full fat in the US, I doubt I would get it, I think it would be too rich tasting. 

The British don't seem too keen on mustard, and some of my British friends are appaled by my heavy use of mustard.  It isn't a problem in Germany because they love mustard there too and there are several types depending on what you eat.  Mmm... mustard.

Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
