by Jessica Martinez

The ham and cheese sub is a popular classic. Subway's 6-inch ham and cheese sub has a relatively moderate calorie count and is a decent portion size, making it a good fast food choice.


The 6-inch ham and cheese on whole wheat is made with Black Forest ham and 9-grain wheat bread. Subway offers cheddar, monterey jack, Swiss, American, provolone and pepper jack cheeses.

Subway's olive oil blend contains 45 calories, but is high in heart-healthy fats. Mustard contains only five calories and vinegar contains none.
