Disgraced former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle is barely three months into his nearly 16-year prison term and has already gained a reported 30 pounds.

In Touch Weekly reported that Fogle is also undergoing constant threats, physical attacks and taunts from his fellow inmates.

“He’s really started packing on the pounds again, probably from depression,” a prison insider recently told In Touch Weekly.

Fogle was sentenced to 15 years and 8 months last year after being convicted on charges of child pornography and crossing state lines to pay for sex with minors. He has reportedly been binge-eating in prison.

“Jared’s breakfast is usually Frosted Flakes with fruit or oatmeal with cake. He loves ‘cake day’ in the dining hall twice a week and he buys Honey Buns by the box, as well as other pastries, in the commissary on his weekly shopping day,” the prison insider said. “He’s been known to eat an entire box of eight at one sitting!”

He has been ridiculed and physically attacked, including one reported incident in which an inmate slapped him across the face and ran him out of a gym.

The other inmates reportedly call him a “dirty child rapist” and “Chomo,” which is short for child molester.

A former prisoner told In Touch Weekly there are two kinds of people who are hated more than anyone in prison: “Rats” and child molesters.
