Healthier Sandwich Orders Are subs or sandwiches on the menu for lunch today? Healthier sandwich orders will help you stay on track with your diet. They can be some of the best fast food options for weight loss.

Whether you’re heading to Panera Bread, Jimmy John’s, Jersey Mike’s, or Subway, we’ve got some simple swaps to help shave a few Calories off your meal.

Keep in mind that many of these options are still relatively high in Calories, sodium, and other nutrients of concern. However, choosing the lighter choice can help save you upwards of 300 Calories.

Healthier sandwich orders are always available when you know what to swap. Remember that toppings, condiments, and sides add up fast!

Consider that a ordering a six inch “fresh fit” sub from Subway with cheese, light mayonnaise, and a bag of baked Lays will cost you 520 Calories, 18g of fat, and 1,190mg of sodium: 26% of the average, active adult’s daily Caloric need, plus 30% of your daily fat and 51% of the maximum recommended intake for sodium.

By comparison, that’s more Calories, fat, and sodium than a bean burrito from Taco Bell! Always consider the number of items in your order, and the number of additions and customizations you make to your meal. Healthier sandwich orders can be found at many of your favorite shops. Check out the swap options below.
