nowhere near the amount of calories that you have already taken in due to alcohol to have a kebab in the first place.

though feeling peckish now..... kebab...... hmmmm :)

Hmm after the kebab i did have a packet of weightwatchers crisps....hoping a "healthy" snack might cancel out the bad choice of dinner tonight ! Hahah :-)

THing is I have lost 2 stone and am now back to my original size 10 (yay!) so although no longer on a "diet" i am so paranoid about putting any weight back on...but won't bore you with diet / healthy eating trivia though cos this post is really about ...KEBABS...yum!

Kebabs are usually lamb.

millions of calories I would suggest.

But thats not the point of a kebab.

When you want one you just have to have one.


Happy daze.

A grilled chicken kebab (not the retracted muck looking like an elephants leg) with all the salad and a non-creamy sauce is BY FAR the healthiest takeaway you can have.

If you want lamb go for a shish.

Doner meat is full of trans fats and salt. Not at all healthy.

Although I do not give a stuff about calories I would say a fully loaded doner has about 1000 calories and enough salt for about 4 whole days food!!!

A heart attack in a pita if you ask me.
Last time I had a kebab it was a freezing night, and where it dripped on the pavement it congealed in white solid fat blobs- and I envisaged my arteries coping with that.
A doner kebab is a conglomeration of various bits and pieces of �meat� from any number of domestic species held together with fat, to form the familiar �elephant leg� that we see so regularly.

If you take the average of your findings, say 1,000 calories, then this would be the approximate equivalent to �.

4.5 x 550ml cans of Stella
2 x Big Macs
7 x cans of coke
4.5 x bagels
7 x donuts
11 x glasses of champagne
12 x eggs / 6 Cadbury�s Cr�me eggs

Of course, if the doner is only 620 calories or so, then because it is only around half the calories of the above you can have twice as much!
I am sure I read somewhere that there is a wineglass full of oil in each kebab!!!

Not very healthy at all.
Actually, unusually, a donner kebab is only 9 weight watchers points which is one of the best takeaway options. The points system takes into account calories and the saturated fat content. There are a couple of chinese meals that are slightly less but a portion of boiled rice alone is between 7 and 9 points, which is an OK calorie-wise, if not health wise meal. Bet that shocked you all didn't it?? I actually rang the WW team and checked because I thought they'd made a mistake but meat - even fatty meat- is lower cals that refined carbs.
