Jared Fogle has been all over TV and billboards advocating the "Subway Diet". The promise is that by eating two sandwiches a day, you can lose weight just like he did. He lost over 245 pounds over the course of a year and did so with minimal exercise.
Top 3 Diet Plans (based on Diet Channel visitor activity):

Jared's simple Subway Diet
People on the Subway Diet start the day off with coffee. When lunch time comes around you have a six-inch sub with baked potato chips. Keep in mind that the sub should be from their low fat menu. For dinner, you just have a twelve-inch veggie sub. This is the diet, and it's easy to see that it's not hard to follow.
Is the Subway diet a success?
The Subway Diet is more a personal success story than a universal way to lose weight. Different people take different routes to weight loss, and this approach may not work for everyone. When he started off at over 300 pounds, Jared's body required a very large number of calories to maintain its weight. By creating a sustained calorie deficit over a long period, he was able to lose weight, but this principle would work for anyone, and has nothing to do with Subway sandwiches in particular. Simply reducing your caloric intake and getting exercise can work wonders for people who want to shed pounds.
