Dump the low-fat yogurt . . . actually, dump 'low-fat' anything.

You can check here for the rest of the bad news . . . Official SUBWAY Restaurants' Nutrition Information;

Teriyaki always has sugar or, less commonly, honey. Might be just a small amount, or the meat may be sopped with syrup. Personally (with some sadness), I avoid all of it.

I don't know about the other sauces listed. The Subway link should have that info.

Shanny's absolutely right about the low-fat yogurt. Foods labeled "low-fat," "no-fat," "light" or "lite" are usually made that way by removing the fat, then adding carby-starchy fillers for consistency and some form(s) of sugar for flavor.

BUT ... the real test of whether a particular food works for you is ... to test! This is especially true for "new" foods. A good schedule would be to test before the meal, then one hour after first bite, then one hour after that.

Well there goes Subway down the tube .. Been to 3 restaurants will leave nameless for now but seems most don't have squat for someone looking to eat low to no carbs .. Got a strange look when asked for Broccoli instead a Baked Potato .. Told her I was just recovering from recent brain surgery ..

LOL Jayson!! Good one! Sometimes saying you are gluten intolerant is easier for some servers to understand. I have had good luck so far getting substitutions at restaurants just by asking, but if I didn't at one, I would not go there again.

I was at an Applebee's shortly after dx and asked to have the potato subed for a salad and the waitress said she couldn't do that, but could give me steamed broccoli and cauliflower instead. Didn't make much sense cost wise, but I gladly took the veggies!

FYI - for anyone that loves Subway and doesn't know this, they'll make any of their subs into a salad. This way you can still enjoy your favorite sandwich innards on a bed of fresh lettuce. All you have to do is ask, & they'll transform it into a salad. Works with any sub.

Thanks Mary the way I travel, Subway has been a good option for me.. And they do have oil and vinegar there which have found out to be my best option for a salad dressing ..

Subway's regular ranch has 2g carbs per packet. Their low fat ranch has 14g carbs per packet

There's only 9g per serving for the sweet onion sauce and 1g per serving in chipotle southwest sauce.

Everything i thought didn't seem too serious....

Did i do something wrong? It was roughly 35 - 40 g.
