Weight Watchers Guide to Subway

Are you wondering what weight watchers restaurants are the best to choose when you are on the go? Do you need a Weight Watchers Guide to Subway? With a wide variety of Zero Point vegetables on the menu and a little planning, you can have a delicious and filling meal on the go from Subway without sacrificing a ton of points. This is a post to save, so make sure you pin this!

Is Subway Weight Watchers Friendly?

The short answer is yes, especially with the weight watcher changes for 2021 that includes the new concept of personalpoints with a variety of zero point foods that are customized to you! The longer answer is that like everything else, you need to be prepared before you order or a healthy choice can easily turn into a disaster. Do your best to stick to lean proteins like turkey, chicken or tuna.

What does “Fresh Fit” mean on the Subway menu?

Subway is a great choice when making healthier eating changes because they guide you to make the best choices. By looking on their menu, they label certain items as “Fresh Fit”. These items have higher protein, 2 servings of vegetables and 24g of whole grains, a great balance of nutrition for your meal!

Subway defines Fresh Fit Subs as “6″ subs prepared on 9-grain wheat bread with tomatoes, onions, green peppers, cucumbers, lettuce & spinach with up to one Fresh Fit® sauce. Fresh Fit® subs prepared in front of you and not a diet program. ** Vegetable servings refers to [6-inch or footlong] subs prepared to standard recipe. 1 serving = ½ cup raw veggies or 1 cup leafy veggies”

What Subway Breads and Wraps should I choose on weight watchers?

There seems to be a myth surrounding wraps that somehow they are healthier for us than a regular sandwich, but in this case, there are more points in a wrap!

There are so many varieties of wraps on the menu. We have been conditioned to believe that wraps are healthier than bread, but if we look at how many points are in weight watchers wraps, you'll see that is just false information. Here is a list of the 6″ bread and wrap options at Subway and what the points are.

  • Spinach Wrap – 10 points
  • Tomato Basil Wrap – 10 points
  • Plain Wrap – 11 Points
  • Habanero Wrap – 10 points
  • Hearty Multigrain Bread – 5 points
  • Sourdough Bread – 6 points
  • Harvest Bread – 6 points
  • Gluten Free Bread – 13 points
  • Rosemary & Sea Salt Bread – 6 points
  • Rye Bread – 5 points
  • Italian White Bread – 6 points
  • Parmesan Oregano Bread – 6 points
  • Monteray Cheddar Bread – 7 points
  • Roasted Garlic Bread – 6 points
  • Southwestern Spicy Bread – 5 points
  • 9-grain Wheat Bread – 5 points

Subway Sliders are Low Points

The new addition of Subway Sliders are a great grab and go kind of snack when you just need something quick. The mini Italian bread is only 4 points, then just use your personalpoints zero points selections to build the slider that is best for you!


What is on the Subway breakfast menu that is myWW Friendly?

Breakfast is the perfect example of how quickly points can escalate out of control. The artisan flatbread is actually higher in points than the regular 6″ bread options.

If you must have:

  • Bread: opt for one of the simple bread choices for 5 points like the 9-grain wheat.
  • Cheese: stick to shredded mozzarella, for only 2 points
  • Sauces/Dressings: Spicy Yellow Mustard is ZERO points and provides a great flavor to add a morning zing

If your subway will allow substitutions on meat, you can ask for turkey instead of black forest ham.

It may only save you 1 point, but every point counts!

When you order a subway salad calories are a consideration when choosing your dressings as they will affect your points. Try to stick to as many vegetables as you can along with a lite dressing.

  • Veggie Delite Chopped Salad, no dressing (1 Points)
  • Oven Roasted Chicken Breast Chopped Salad, no dressing (1 point)
  • Club Chopped Salad (2 Points)

What are the best dressings for the lowest points?

  • Low-Fat Balsamic Vinaigrette (1 point)
  • Oil & Vinegar (2 points)
  • Fat-Free Sweet Onion (4 points)

My wonderful aunt also taught me that carrying a packet of your favorite lite dressing with you whenever possible can alleviate uncertainty with ordering out.
Her purse is filled with little drink mixes, snacks and dressings to keep her on track with her points while dining out.

What are Subway Points?
