Jared Fogel was, is, and will continue to be America's
weight loss icon. As an obese college student in Indiana he
lost 245 pounds on a self-devised diet of Subway sandwiches.
Since 2000, he has appeared thousands of times on national
television as the spokesperson for Subway's Eat healthy
Platform; and he's slated to continue in this role
indefinitely. In fact, Subway worried that he might be
getting overexposed and decided to discontinue him. Sales
fell off. Jared was quickly rehired. But to keep him from
being overexposed, Subway's program runs Jared for six or
eight weeks every three months.
His book is not so much a diet book (his diet was pretty
simple to grasp - eat Subway sandwiches) but it's more a
motivational, self-help book which offers hope to people who
want to change their lives.
Jared has also appeared on Oprah, Larry King Live, the Today
Show, Good Morning America, the Jane Pauly Show and has made
hundreds of speaking appearances and public appearances at
sports and civic events.
Jared's lessons include:
Find Your Own Personal Spark
One Size Doesn't Fit All
Change Your Mind to Change Your Life
See the Big Picture
Change is for Life
The Harder You Work, the Luckier You Get
