Planning to head to the Subway?

Subway offers a pretty helpful printable PDF nutrition and dining guide, as well as customizable menu options, but it helps even more to have a little keto help from someone who’s been where you are when you’re wondering what to order. The best thing about Subway? You can make any sandwich into a salad, which gives you easy options for ordering.

The basics of successful Subway ordering:

  • Stick with the salads.
  • Avoid bread, flatbreads, wraps, cookies, and chips.
  • When in doubt, leave dressings and toppings out.
  • For drinks, stick with water, unsweetened iced tea, or Diet Coke products.
  • If the menu says “sugar-free”, check the nutrition guide anyway.
  • Download the free app for amazing deals: iPhone or Android

Here’s how to order keto at Subway:

Breakfast

subway keto dining guide – steak and eggs

“I’ll have the Steak, Egg & Cheese Flatbread, no flatbread.”

Ah, breakfast! Mornings are easy, thanks to these little cups (with lids to keep them warm on the go). The printable PDF shows the flatbread at:

  • Flatbread: 230 calories | 4.5g fat | 39g carbs | 7g protein

With that in mind, subtracting for these values (above) each of the breakfasts comes in at the following:

  • Steak, Egg, & Cheese: 240 calories | 12.5g fat | 6g carbs | 21g protein
  • Bacon, Egg, & Cheese: 250 calories | 15.5g fat | 4g carbs | 18g protein
  • Black Forest Ham, Egg, & Cheese: 200 calories | 10.5g fat | 5g carbs | 16g protein
  • Egg & Cheese: 170 calories | 9.5g fat | 4g carbs | 12g protein

Broken down individually, here are the breakfast proteins:

  • Bacon (2 strips): 80 calories | 5g fat | 1g carbs | 6g protein
  • Breakfast sausage: 140 calories | 11g fat | 1g carbs | 10g protein
  • Egg Patty (regular): 120 calories | 7g fat | 3g carbs | 9g protein
  • Egg Patty (white): 80 calories | 2g fat | 3g carbs | 11g protein
  • Steak: 110 calories | 4g fat | 4g carbs | 15g protein

Lunch & Dinner

“I’ll have the Spicy Italian Salad.”

  • Spicy Italian: 310 calories | 23g fat | 13g carbs | 4g fiber | 14g protein

Not feeling the Spicy Italian? You’ve got plenty of options since any sandwich can be made into a salad. As a personal preference, I don’t like the chopped salads. In fact, I ask for mine to NOT be chopped (save for the meat), but do what you prefer:

  • Black Forest Ham110 calories | 3g fat | 13g carbs | 4g fiber | 12g protein
  • Cold Cut Combo: 180 calories | 11g fat | 13g carbs | 4g fiber | 12g protein

  • Turkey Breast: 110 calories | 2g fat | 13g carbs | 4g fiber | 12g protein

Toppings

“…And to that salad, can you add…”

What can you add to your salad? A lot. Be aware some toppings cost extra (varies by location). Legit, I think any of their salads taste amazing with a little salt and pepper. That might sound weird, but it’s so GOOD! Try it sometime! In the meantime, pick from these:

Another salad idea

“I’d like the steak and cheese salad with extra steak.”

Ask for the extra meat when you don’t mind spending an extra $2. It’s worth it when you’re extra hungry!

As you can see, with a little due diligence, you can enjoy lunch wherever your adventures take you! Enjoy!

    I had the steak and cheese salad today. I cut the tomatoes and onions and added pickles. It brought the carb count down by about 5 grams.

  2. Teresa

    Don’t the meatballs contain wheat?

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi Teresa! The meatballs are listed in the menu to show carb amounts. They’re NOT keto, however, at 27 grams of carbohydrates. Hope that helps!

  3. linda c dixon
