Subway wrap - not a healthy option

I had been getting turkey wrap no mayo at Subway, thinking that it's a low carb healthy option. Imagine my surprise when I picked up a nutrition guide at the Subway and saw the info for a wrap.
A wrap by itself has 190 calories, 4.5 g total fat, and 1 g fiber.
6" wheat bread or honey oat is a better option.
6" wheat bread has 200 calories, 2.5 g total fat, and 3 g fiber.
6" honey oat has 250 calories, 3.5g total fat, and 4 g fiber.

I feel so cheated! Subway has been touting the wrap as a low carb option, but it has quietly changed it.

bread in general (be it a honey wheat, wrap, etc) isn't likely to be low carb.

OP here:
I realize that bread's not a low carb food, but when Subway first came out with the wrap, it was touting it as a low carb option for its sandwiches. It then switched it under our noses very quietly. That's what got me upset.

I can see why you're upset, OP. I understood them to be low carb, too. Thanks for educating all of us.

ok, how can you say it's not a low carb option compared to the bread when you don't even post the carb count. Even if it only has 1 gram of fiber, if it's got 26g of carb v. 42 in the bread, it is lower carb. You can't comment on low carb without posting the carb count...

Make sure it's whle wheat, you're less likely to see it on your thighs and butt because complex carbs are harder for your body to break down.

I personally just enjoy the wrap for the flavor. The massive pile of bread they usually give my sandwich kind of makes my veggies just taste like... bread.

I don't fully understand how the wrap is not still a low-carb option, even if it is fatty and low in fiber.

I think they cashed in on the slogan of "we're a better choice than McDonalds or Burger King" but I am never fooled into thinking that Subway is actually healthy.

Subway is very healthy if you order the right thing - i.e. turkey on whole wheat bread with lots and lots of vegies. No cheese and no mayo if cutting down on calories. I don't know, with bread vs. wrap which one is 'more healthy' but the wrap is supposed to be less carbs. If you believe carbs are unhealthy, then the wrap is still better, and the salad (everything the same without any wheat product) is better still.

The wrap has 33g carb, wheat bread has 40g carb, and honey oat has 48g carb. Although the wrap has a little bit less carb, it also has 2g more fat than wheat bread and less fiber.

well obviously then, subway is totally accurate in saying the wrap is a lower carb option, and OP didn't konw what she was talking about.

Everyone has a different idea of healthy. If all Subway was saying is lower carb, they're right, and OP should add 2 + 2 and get 3.

in the "low carb world" of following diets, anything below 10 is considered low carb. maybe you should take a midol and call it a day.

I believe the OP may have been confusing carbs and calories. If you're just counting calories the bread is a better choice. The information OP listed was on calories. I count calories myself and am always suprised by how many calories are in wraps and tortillas.

Has it really been three years since the
  • Wholesale Jerseys last World Baseball Classic? As we approach the second-ever World Baseball Classic odds, it is never too soon to start examining the power players. Keep in mind that after this WBC
  • NFL Shop , they will only come once every four nfl nike jerseys Here's the four major players in the upcoming 2009 WBC:

    United States +150 In baseball,cheap stitched nfl jerseys being an unknown team helps you because you become harder to scout and harder to prepare for
  • Arizona Cardinals
  • . Take a chance with the Cubans again. They take this tournament very seriously. As far as World Baseball Classics lines go, stitched nfl jerseyslook for the U.S. team to be a real underdog heading into the 2009 tournament
  • Atlanta Falcons
  • ?they might be worth a bet to win it all if the price is right.

    The Yankees underachieved in the 2006 World Baseball Classic and you can be assured that they will make some concerted effort to right the ship
  • Baltimore Ravens
  • . They boasted a fairly talented roster but neglected starting pitching, which was eventually the difference.

    Japan +800

    This is a pretty penny for a team that won the entire tournament in 2006. They are worth a flier here because keep in mind
  • Buffalo Bills
  • , for the most part, cheap nfl jerseysthe Japanese team is an unknown commodity. A lot of people are making assumptions and although the public perceives they are more flukey,cheap nfl jerseys than good, stitched nfl jerseysthe reality is that this is a stellar team. We're starting to get a taste with Ichiro
  • Carolina Panthers
  • , Daisuke Matsuzaka and Akinori Otsuka, but they are more than capable of winning it all again. Definitely a team to consider when you bet on the World Baseball Classic.

    Cuba +1000

    Speaking of great unknowns, it doesn't get much more mysterious than the Cuban team
  • CFL Jersey
  • . This team lost in the finals to Japan in 2006,cheap stitched nfl jerseys disappointing sportsbook diehards everywhere. The Cubans have a squad full of potential MLB All-Stars.stitched nfl jerseys cheap Last time around, the team was worried that a number of them might defect
  • Cleveland Browns
  • ,stitched nfl jerseys even though that that never turned out to be the case.

    Dominican Republic +175

    Go ahead, argue with a team that has Albert Pujols
  • Chicago Bears
  • , Alfonso Soriano, Jose Reyes and David Ortiz.stitched nfl jerseys cheap The sportsbooks certainly won't be debating it
  • Cincinnati Bengals
  • .cheap stitched nfl jerseys Interestingly enough, stitched nfl jerseys cheapthis team doesn't have as much starting pitching as you might think and if the US team brings some good starters, they should be able to beat this team. Bartolo Colon and Francisco Liriano led this starting rotation in 2006. They have some work to do but they can clearly outhit anyone.
