Chipotle has unseated Subway as the healthy fast food of choice, with people across the internet heralding the positive effects of eating at the burrito chain. 

One California man found fame by eating Chipotle for several months and retaining a bodybuilder physique. Followers of the trendy Whole30 diet, which bans processed foods,  say Chipotle has the best options of any chain restaurant. Online testimonials herald the benefits of eating the chain’s food to lose weight. 

But as Chipotle enjoys consistent sales growth, Subway, which arguably invented the idea of “fresh” fast food two decades ago, is facing a steep decline. 

Americans who once praised Subway’s low-fat offerings are now concerned the chain’s lunch meats and sauces are overly processed with fillers and additives.

“What Americans see as healthy has evolved,” Drew Harwell at The Washington Post writes. “Subway hasn’t.”

Generational differences also contributed to Chipotle’s newfound popularity as a health food, according to Tristano. 

“Millennials care less about calories and more about where their food comes from,” he said.
