Subway's Jared talks to students about healthy living


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Jared Fogle, the man made famous by losing weight on "The Subway Diet" visited Wilmington today to talk to kids about eating right and exercising.

The previously 425-pound sandwich spokesman is touring the country with his old, size 60 pants telling his story and encouraging healthy habits.

Fogle developed a weight problem as a team and claims eating right with subway helped him lose all the extra weight.

"Getting the chance to come to schools and share my story and really try to hopefully show the kids some of the mistakes I made growing up, you know, all the video game playing, all the internet, all the junk food, all the fast food and how my life sort of spiraled out of control and how I became over 400 pounds, and hopefully they can learn from that and not make the same mistakes that I made," Fogle said.

Fogle, who talked to students at Myrtle Grove Middle School and Williston Middle School today, says he ate about 700 Subway sandwiches in a little less than a year at the Subway located near his college dorm.
