As I understand it (and I'm willing to be corrected), consubstantiation claims that the substance of bread and wine remain after the consecration and the substance of body and blood are "tacked on" to the bread and wine.  It is not a "physical change" any more than transubstantiation is.

In the end, transubstantiation is not a physical change since a physical change would be perceptible on some level and hence an accident.
