Jared, the renowned Subway pitchman who lost 245 pounds by eating low-calorie sandwiches, is getting hitched. Jared Fogle is tying the knot with girlfriend Katie McLaughlin, a teacher who Jared met while they both attended Indiana University.
Usually the need to lose weight in the months leading up to a wedding is an issue that is dominated by the brides-to-be. But this time around, it’s the groom who has some work to do. When you’re the most famous weight loss pitchman in the country, it’s hard to ignore.
As is the case with many people who battle weight issues, Jared has slipped up, recently gaining some 40 pounds. He attributes it to “not exercising as much as I should have and not paying attention to what I was eating.”
But he plans to right the ship quickly.
“I’m going to look darn good in those wedding pictures,” Jared told People magazine.
Jared popped the question to his girlfriend last November. The wedding is planned for this summer.
