    Hi all

    OK, after getting to my target weight in May i have now put 10lbs on :mad:

    My new(ish) regime is 3 x LL packs and one healthy meal. Lately i've kidded myself that a doner kebab (no sauces though - just pitta, meat and salad) is an acceptable healthy meal - my god the meat, altho gorgeous, is full of fat and yukky stuff!!

    I could quite easily go for the Shish Kebab which is pure chicken breast but why do i have to go for the worst and most fattening option!!!

    I'd b really grateful if someone could kick some sense into me by telling me how bad these things really are!!

    Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i'm going out tonight and will eat a kebab and it needs to be a chicken shish!!!!!!!!

    I'd worry more about how much of it is actually "meat" :eek:

    The saying "eyeholes, earholes and @rseholes" comes to mind when thinking about what they put in doner meat.

    haha, well that should put me off for life then Rach!! Thanks mate!!

    It's foul stuff isn't it? I mean you can taste it for a whole 24 hours after eating it bleurgh!!

    I love sausages too, what is wrong with me? I'd choose sausage over a fillet steak any day! i should be sectioned!

    Do you know how long those skewers of meat sit there, going round and round? With flies, dust and all sorts diving onto them and sizzling in the heat!! :eek:

    That's disgusting!! Plus they move them from the heat now and again don't they to stop them burning (perfect temp for flies then!!) and then heated back up time and time again!!

    My god, what the hell am i putting in my new slim body!!! You are what you eat after all!!

    Thanks DQ

    squashedfroggy I love choccy

    You could always make sure you have the 'small' kebab (not that im trying to encourage you!)..... but just think of that taste you get the morning after you eat it! Yuck yuck yuck.. when you see it turning on the spit think of all that grease & fat on that is going into your stomach and how long that 'meat' has been rotating :eek: ... I cant eat them things now.. WW brainwashed me into eating the chicken ones, they are lovely!

    No more kebabs for me (i hope!). Yeah bangers are yummy. Esp the tesco's finest pork and stilton ones although not had those for over a year!! Since getting to target i have tried the quorn sausages (with different flavourings) and i have to say they are very yummy and only 200 odd calories for five!!!!

    Hmmm my problem is that i can't just have a bit or a small one - it's all or nothing so i always go large or extra large grrrrr! I'm better off changing the whole meal tbh and i will have a chicken shish tonight and not the germ infested block of shite that has been rotating since last tuesday! Mind you the shish takes ages to cook so depends how long i have to wait for my taxi haha excuses already!! Seriously it's chicken or nothing!!!!!!!!!

    Hun - if this doesn't put you off, nothing will!!

    I haven't eaten a kebab since 1983. I was a student in London and used to go to a kebab shop just off Tottenham Court Road. One night, I commented to a mate that I wasn't very keen on the little white squishy bits in the meat - assuming they were bits of gristle.

    She just looked at me and said - oh, didn't you know - they're maggots - that shop has been closed down by the Health Inspector!
