Even though Subway is associated with The Biggest Loser and that guy with the fat pants, their food does not always have fewer calories. When asked how many calories their meal contained, Subway eaters (vs. McDonalds eaters) consistently underestimated. This article is about that psychology.
46 college students were given coupons for either a McDonald’s Big Mac or a Subway 12-inch Italian B.M.T. The B.M.T. sandwich has 300 more calories than the Big Mac, but the Subway diners were less likely than the McDonald’s diners to order a diet soda, more likely to upgrade to a larger drink and more likely to order cookies.
Interesting. Also, classic cut all the way!
