Remember Subway's spokesperson Jared, the guy who lost weight by simply eating at Subway? We know that in order to lose weight, exercise is a necessary component to any diet and you probably won't lose a drastic amount of weight simply by switching your diet to only Subway foods. However, we've compiled a list of foods from Subway that amount to just under 500 calories in total, so that next time you're in a rush and looking for a quick lunch or dinner, you can stop at Subway without feeling guilty about eating fast food.

6" Turkey Breast & Ham Sub: This sub combines the hearty flavors of turkey and ham with your favorite veggies and adds up to only 280 calories, plus only four grams of fat!

Apple Slices: Enjoy this package of sliced apples for a sweet healthy bite to eat. Apple slices are becoming a healthy staple in many fast food chains, so you can substitute these for fries almost anywhere if you're looking to cut down. Coming in at only 35 calories, that brings your total to 405 calories.
