Subway's Jared blames Nintendo for his weight problems

The man that made a name for himself eating Subway sandwiches—and losing nearly 250 lbs. in the process—recently implicated Nintendo in the plot that made him fat. While lecturing at the University of Missouri-Columbia, Jared Fogle told the audience that he could trace his past weight problems back to "the best birthday present of my life: a Nintendo." Apparently Jared had perfected the one-handed approach, as he "usually had one hand on the controller and one in a bag of chips." Although his parents eventually limited his playing time, the damage had been done, and Jared continued down this dark path, eventually topping out at 425 lbs.
