In today’s ironic message, former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle, famous for his 200-pound weight loss from eating Subway subs, has put on 30 pounds in two months while in prison for possessing child pornography. Fogle’s representatives blame the extreme weight gain on stress eating, as his life in prison has been unpleasant, as he is routinely taunted and threatened, as is the case with pedophiles in the penal system.
According to the Inquisitr, Jared Fogle is working hard with his legal team to reduce his sentence. Fogle’s lawyers say that he agreed to plea to one sentence, and the judge tacked on extra time, as the court was disgusted with his various crimes. If Fogle wins the argument, he will only get a reduction of one year, which will still have him in prison for 15 years.
The New York Post says that Subway’s Jared Fogle has been power eating from stress since he started to serve his sentence in Indiana. One of the headlines also reads, “Subway Jared Fogle Enjoying a Foot Long In Jail.” Jared Fogle was in possession of child pornography and admitted to having sex with teenage prostitutes.
“He’s really started packing on the pounds again, probably from depression,” a prison source told In Touch Weekly.
Fogle’s power eating reportedly begins early in the morning with a breakfast of Frosted Flakes with fruit, oatmeal, and cake. It is said that weekly “cake day” is Jared Fogle’s favorite day of the week. Fogle favors pastry, and buys Honey Buns by the box. He has been known to throw down a box of eight in one sitting.
Fogle’s nickname in prison is Chomo, which is prison slang for child molester. Fogle initially fought back, and reportedly got a smackdown from another prisoner.
“The inmate slapped him across the cheeks several times and made his face red. Jared just stood there stunned, then ran out of the gym,” one prison insider said.
Gawker says that the former Subway spokesman and now convicted child molester is well on his way to regaining his extra 200 pounds. It seems that the food available in prison does not comply with the #EatFresh slogan put forward by Subway, which was Jared Fogle’s weight loss program while he was at university. The extreme weight gain is being called “poetic” by the media.
It is thought by In Touch Weekly that Jared Fogle is putting on an average of 10 pounds a month, which means that he will be about 120 pounds heavier in the fall. Larry Levine, a former federal prisoner, said that Jared Fogle falls into one of the two most hated groups in the prison system, child molesters and informants, or “rats.”
“It’s a violent place and he’s going to have a rough go of it for a long time. Fogle don’t have a chance.”
Jared Fogle’s weight gain will certainly be monitored during his 15-plus year sentence, and junk food bingeing could be the end of the convicted child molester.
Do you think Jared Fogle’s weight gain is due to prison binge-eating?
