    I have an eating out guide and find it useful when go to resaraunts but when i get a takeway i dont order currys etc i like a large white box (thing) filled with chips, cheese and donner meat with sauce :( i know it is absolute crap but its addictive and i think about eating it all the time, any idea how many points would be in it?

    also wondering about large silver dish from chinese takeaway filled with chips and curry sauce?

    erm dunno about the curry, but chinese one i have also but with rice, chips and curry sauce, i normally say 5 points for rice, as a normal full tray is 10, and it's about half and then i weigh chips as 170g = 7.5 points and the curry sauce apparently people point the same as the chippy one which is 2 !

    so 14.5 for a portion of chips rice and curry sauce? yum, mind u i would usually have half a bag of prawn crackers and make wee sandwiches using 2 at a time so that would add about 10points :(

    a munchy box where i am from is a pizza box filled with donner meat, chips, mixed pakora and salad (for good measure) is that what u get from yours? i was meaning a rectangular white box, smaller than a munchy box

    i want one of those machines that u put food into blender then into machine and it tells u the calories :)

    with the munch box i think the best thing to do is point the donner as whatever it is; i did copy a list of chippy items around somewhere on another thread in points part, and then when you get the chips weigh them until you have 170gs or if you want more than do that but remember to add on extra as 170g = 7.5 and then i think pakora is on the indian list so you can work it out from that :)

    chicken pakora is in there, states 6.5 but i dunno whether you would have same portion in the box as a main meal, so just point it according to amount you have :)

    tbh i'd say anything between 16-22 ish points all depending on the amount of chips you have etc :)

    maybe should just stay away from it, i dont think there is any diet that would allow chips,cheese and donner meat. would be too good to be true espically if i want it more than once a week ;)

    if you did your own chips or had less than 170g, did your own cheese WW one or something different but low, and change to chicken doner?? or even have your lamb doner its allowable just need to limit it and also save up points during your week to allow for it also :)
