Jared Fogle also known as the Subway Guy, is a spokesman employed by Subway in its advertising campaigns. He is known for his significant weight loss, now known as the “Subway diet”, attributed to eating Subway sandwiches, which led to his role promoting the company.
Jared Fogle first came to media attention in April 1999, after Ryan Coleman, a former dormmate of Fogle, ran into him and hardly recognized him because of the lost weight, and wrote an article for Indiana Daily Student about Fogle’s weight loss. Men’s Health magazine confirmed the story and included the “Subway sandwich diet” in an article, “Stupid Diets. . . that Work!”
According to the article, Jared Fogle had become obese by eating junk food and not exercising. Switching to eating at Subway, he changed his eating habits there to include healthier choices and smaller portions free of fattening condiments such as mayonnaise, which was followed by his significant weight loss. A Chicago-area Subway franchisee took the idea to Subway’s Chicago advertising agency. The agency confirmed the story by visiting a Subway franchise near the Indiana University campus, where the staff identified him from his description.
