INDIANAPOLIS — Former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle, who is serving a more than 15-year prison sentence for possessing child pornography and paying for sex with underage girls, has reportedly gained some of his infamous weight back due to stress eating.

A “prison insider” told In Touch magazine that Fogle has been eating “probably from depression,” and that he has been seen snacking on cakes, pastries and cereal during his few months behind bars.

The insider told In Touch that Fogle, who famously lost 200 pounds by eating Subway sandwiches, has also snacked on honey buns “by the box.”

“He’s been known to eat an entire box of eight at one sitting,” the insider told In Touch.

The insider added that Fogle is hated by many inmates, who nicknamed him “Chomo,” short for child molester. Fogle then turned to food as his only source of comfort, according to the magazine’s report.

Fogle was sentenced in November on one count each of distributing and receiving child porn and traveling to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a child.
