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 SparkOne Size Doesn't Fit AllChange Your Mind to Change Your LifeSee the Big PictureChange is for LifeThe Harder You Work, the Luckier You Get

Change Your Life Your Own Way!Jared Fogle was a seriously overweight Indiana University student when he decided that only he—not doctors, family, or well-meaning friends—could turn his life around. Without mentioning it to a soul, Jared devised his own diet of Subway sandwiches (turkey for lunch, veggie delight for dinner). At the end of a year, he had lost almost 250 pounds, and began exercising for the first time ever. Once Subway got wind of Jared’s success, through the campus newspaper, they began using him in their national advertisements and in short order Jared became a folk hero. The country’s attraction to Jared wasn’t just the spectacular weight loss, but something else too: Jared’s triumph over weight was clearly not manufactured by a company or a famous doctor, but was genuine, idiosyncratic, and built from within.
In Jared, The Subway Guy: Winning Through Losing: 13 Lessons for Turning Your Life Around, you can tap into that can-do must-change spirit by absorbing Jared’s simple, sensible messages, including:
--Find Your Own Personal Spark (the thing that goads you into action)
--One Size Doesn’t Fit All (a plan that works for “everyone” else may not work for you)
--Change Your Mind to Change Your Life (grab the power of determination)
--The Harder You Work, The Luckier You Get (nobody has success dropped in their lap)
Jared Fogle began appearing in Subway advertisements in 2000, after spectacular weight loss eating the chain's sandwiches. He lives in Indianapolis, Indiana, and travels around the country throughout the year on a vigorous speaking and personal appearance schedule. Anthony Bruno is the author of the novels Seven and Hot Fudge and the nonfiction titles The Iceman and The Seekers. He lives in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
