I'll have to dig out my "carbs and cals" book I got when I started carb counting for my insulin doses. Some fruit is quite scary in the amount of carbohydrates and calories. The acid in them will rot your teeth too.
I screwed up my courage and took a return train from Guildford to Woking Sunday. Guildford was all organised, hand sanitiser and free mask as you went in. Everyone was complying.
Coming back Woking had nothing and was enforcing nothing. Most people were not wearing masks.
Are we now saying kebab and chips is more healthy than fruit and veg?
A lot of people who are eating them are not hiding indoors. Must prove something?
Lamb shish in a pitta with a salad is incredibly healthy.
95% of the chips I eat are oven chips, otherwise I'd have to give them up...
Just remember @dangie those are the people working so that you can hide! So don't knock them.
I think many people would be surprised at just how 'healthy' a kebab can be.
Chicken, char-grilled with lots of salad, together with a little chilli sauce plus a thin kebab (especially if wholemeal, but there is a limit!) is pretty much perfect from a nutritional point of view.
It's only when the stuff going in is smothered in fat or sugar laden sauces, or fatty cuts of meat are used that the calorie count goes up.
Posh food can be fatty and salty and sugary albeit not all three at the same course; it often is. Think confits. Then all those rich sauces based on béchamel sauce. Deserts full of sugar and cream. Cheese to finish with. The list goes on.
We tend not to drink beer(typically 4-5abv) with that stuff do we. We accompany it by wine(typically ~14abv).
Agreed. But not those eaten after six pints on a Saturday night
You're only jealous.
Live and let die, mate
Yes I know. Four pints is my limit nowadays...
My carbs & cals book has been a revelation.
6 pints of ale or lager followed by a large doner kebab with chips is very similar in calories to a typical meal at home of spaghetti bolognese washed down with four glasses of red wine.
Wine has double the calories of beer by volume.
Yeah, but a one litre bier stein of the stuff might be a problem.
How about if you had the 6 pints followed by the healthy Lamb shish in a pitta with a salad..?
A winner all round....
Note: Would have to be Real Ale & not Lager
Just the two pints of merlot then please guvnor
Half a litre max, more often half a bottle (375ml). The evenings of a whole bottle have been history for at least a month.
Its not just calories. You've got to consider one's liver.
