Fogle changed his eating habits upon the switch to eating at Subway by eating smaller portions that were free of high calorie condiments such as mayonnaise.
While following this diet, he lost over 200 pounds (91 kg).
Fogle's tenure with Subway ended after he was investigated for paying for sex with minors and receiving child pornography in 2015.
On August 19, 2015, he agreed to plead guilty in federal court to possessing child pornography and traveling to pay for sex with minors.
It is listed as a sin here and in other passages (along with idolatry, theft, greed, lying, and sexual perversion).
While the next verse from the above passage is quick to point out that although some Christians used to practise those sins—that they have since been "justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ" and are thus forgiven their sins—extramarital sex has historically been considered to be one of the more serious and damaging sins, possibly because of passages like 1 Corinthians that speak of it as sinning against one's own body. Traditional interpretations of Islamic law (or Sharia) prescribe severe punishments for zina, or extramarital sex, by both men and women.
I wish I had something substantial to say about how my life is different now – for example, that I am seeing someone, or engaged, or married – but unfortunately none of that is true.
In fact, I have not had any sort of relationship since the one I wrote about 5 or 6 years ago.
I know some of you are interested in the application of this halacha and how it actually affects people in real life, so I want you to know how it is affecting me. I have "made out" with one man, and that was more than 5 years ago. How innocent I was, how stupid, not to realize that no matter how "religious" a man may seem on the outside, no matter that every Friday night he sings "The internalization of the fact that Orthodox people are every bit as superficial as everyone else has shaken my love for the community, and by extension for the laws that govern it.
I am trying to deal with it with as much humor and grace as I can – I do not go around complaining to my girlfriends, for example, and I try to keep busy so that my life is not all about feeling sorry for myself – and for the most part I am still a normal member of society even though I do sometimes succumb to deep sadness. So much of what I value about the Torah was related to family life. Take away the children and Purim is just hearing the megilla and giving food packages to a couple of people and having a big meal with relatives I do not particularly feel like seeing, especially when they have had too much to drink.
Where extramarital sexual relations breach a sexual norm, it may also be referred to as adultery (sexual acts between a married person and a person other than the spouse), fornication (sexual acts between unmarried people), philandery, or infidelity.
These terms may also carry moral or religious consequences in civil or religious law.
