Jared Fogle: Packing on Pounds, Getting Harassed in Prison!

by at . Comments

Jared Fogle rose to fame in 2000 after the world learned that the formerly obese Indiana native had dropped a significant amount of weight by adhering to a diet that consisted mainly of Subway sandwiches.

Naturally, Subway seized on the opportunity to rebrand itself as a health food chain, and for 15 years, Fogle served as the fast food giant's pitchman, eventually becoming one of the most recognized figures in national advertising.

Little did we know he would turn out to be creepier than a dozen Ronald McDonalds in windowless vans.

As you probably know, Fogle was sentenced to 15 years in prison after a police investigation linked to him a massive child pornography ring.

Fogle pled guilty to soliciting sex from a minor and possession of child porn, and he began serving his sentence in November of last year.

Not surprisingly, as a famous figure who's serving time for a number of vile offenses, Fogle is having a hard time behind bars, and he's reportedly already lost the physique that made him famous:

“He’s really started packing on the pounds again, probably from depression,” a prison insider tells In Touch.

"He loves ‘cake day’ in the dining hall twice a week and he buys Honey Buns by the box, as well as other pastries, in the commissary on his weekly shopping day,” adds the insider. "He’s been known to eat an entire box of eight at one sitting!”

Based on stories about the sort of treatment he's been receiving from his fellow inmates, Fogle has every reason to be depressed:

“Jared is regularly taunted by those who have it out for him,” says the source.

“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.

“He never ratted out the inmates who did it, though, because he was threatened that if he did, they would get him!”

The insider adds that the other inmates refer to him solely by his nickname, "Chomo," which is short for child molester.

Sounds like a rough existence, but if there's one guy you'll never find us feeling sorry for, it's Jared Fogle.
