INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Jared Fogle is spending almost 16 years in prison and he has already gained 30 pounds three months in, inTouch says.

According to a story posted on inTouch, the former Subway spokesperson is not taking to prison life very well.

A prisoner insider told the magazine that Fogle “really started packing on the pounds again, probably from depression.”

The added pounds might be due to Fogle’s diet of cake, sugary cereal and other pastries, the source says.

inTouch’s source also says Fogle is “regularly taunted by those who have it out for him.” He says Fogle is subjected to constant taunting, threats and physical attacks.

“One of the men called Jared a ‘dirty child rapist’ and told him to ‘get the f–k out’ and not come back.”

The prison insider was a recently released inmate from Colorado’s Federal correctional Institution, according to inTouch.

Fogle was sentenced to almost 16 years in prison. He pleaded guilty to one count each of distributing and receiving child porn and traveling to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a child.

“I will be forever remorseful. Not a day will go by that I won’t think about (the victims),” a tearful Fogle told the judge. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
