Those of us watching our calorie and nutrition intake are mindful of what we eat.  To avoid excess water weight and puffiness avoid these Subs

The Subway BMT (bacon, mayonnaise, and tomato) has the highest levels of sodium by far, with a whopping 1900 grams. The Subway Melt, the Coldcut Trio, and the Dijon Horseradish Melt all come in just behind the BMT, with between 1600 and 1800 grams. The average sodium in a Subway sub ranges from 1200-1500 grams, which is still quite a lot for one meal. To make sure not to increase these levels any more than necessary, opt for regular subs rather than “double the meat,” since much of the sodium in a sub is found in the meat, and stick with a 6-inch sub rather than a footlong one.
