'Steer clear of the rotating elephant leg. It is painted with sugar and packed with cheap, fatty meat,' says nutritionist Fiona Kirk. 'A chicken shish kebab is a far better option. It's made of chunks of chicken cooked over coals, stuffed in a pitta with plenty of vitamin-rich salad. As with most fast food, the choice of dressing can turn a relatively healthy dish into a disaster, so swap mayo for tzatziki and steer clear of the pre-bottled barbecue and chilli sauces, which contain loads of refined sugar. If they make their own chilli sauce, go wild: the capsaicin will help boost your metabolism.'

According to Hampshire County Council Scientific Service, the average doner contains the equivalent of a wine glass full of cooking fat. Mmmmm.
