    My "trick" to not eating doner is not easily being able to live in a country where they are at all common (knock on wood that'll change). I know, easier said than done, though apparently there's a place 20-30 min away that sells them. When I'm in Germany or Austria I a. typically don't get them too often, b. often go with doner boxes (with salad or rice), and c. never get the garlic sauce, but that's because I just don't like it.

    I have yet to find a recipe that I really like so I, unfortunately, can't help you there.

    I'm a bit skeptical about all those calorie counts that you guys have.

    First, when I crave one of those... only lamb/beef will do (or whatever it's traditionally made with!).

    But it's still nowhere near 1200 calories! 500 tops for the meat, 250 tops for the pita, tzatziki sauce is not that high calorie so maybe 100 calories, then just some lettuce, tomato and onion... maybe 50 more.

    And even that's pushing it because the local place here has them at 700 calories. I'd like to see those 1200+ calorie ones...

    Yeap you are right. Unless its something weird I dont see it either. Even if you account for any of the extra greasy stuff. There is a reason why ppl that eat these feel like crap after. Also the reason why they are best at 4am when you are coming back from a bar lol :)

    Tzatziki does not go on doner kebab (gralic sauce and mayo sauce will go on).

    Here it's gyros and it typically comes with tzatziki sauce.

    Now I wonder what the difference is between a gyro and a doner kebab. I guess it's the sauce?

    Meat used, spices used, the way its cooked. Pretty much not even close to the same thing :)

    To add to what has already been said, the country of origin is different and the bread is also often different.

    My friend told me about this slow cooker donner kebab a while ago and i doubted it and to be honest the idea of it sounded awful. A while later I tried it and it's actually really good! I chopped up the salad like the kebab shop and added chilli sauce and it was enjoyable. Netmums have actually craked it!!

    Except that this has nothing to do with doner kebab. Nothing.

    I was simply posting a light hearted tease about my lunch.. it was a doner kebab.

    here we tend to just say kebab when we order it..

    Please help. I absolutely crave some scrapings of that five day old, rat infested, elephant leg from my fat belly worry free days. Now though I'm watching my calorie intake. Doner kebab weighs in at about 93 billion calories. Surely with so much leeway, somebody must have come up with a low or at least lower cal option. I know Iceland do a slightly lower cal version, but if you have a recipe for a diet friendly version, I'll give you my life savings.

    Make room for it if you crave it that much. Otherwise, its not worth it.

    You're right, but even though MyFitness app gives me a whopping great 2660 calories per day to work with, a greasy doner kebab is more than that in one go.

    Huh? What kind of Döner Kebab are you guys getting where you're from??? No kebab I've ever had was more than 700 calories, and that includes bread and sauce!

    In a 2014 Which? investigation roughly half the “lamb” doners sampled contained other types of meat. An "average" kebab contains around 2,000 caloriesThe nutrition stats are shocking too. An average kebab contains around 2,000 calories – 80% of your GDA – and almost double your salt requirement.
    Thats for an "average" sized kebab. I used to order an extra large. Probably over double the size. So 4000.

    I think Terry is from the UK based on his Iceland Super market reference.

    A survey of 76 councils across the UK, which tested 490 kebab shops, revealed that on average a standard sized one contained 1006 Kcals per serving and a large one contained 2000 Kcals that was before sauces were added.

    The high calories in those, compared to yours, is probably due to low quality fatty cuts of meats being used compared to the Veal in yours.

    (The survey also found that one in 3 contained meat from multiple animals!)

    Anyway now I'm craving one too. Maybe a small one....

    Mmm, multiple animals meat. Slurp. 😁
