Fast food addict plans to eat 124 kebabs in a single month in ‘kebabathon’


A fast food fanatic plans to scoff a whopping 124 kebabs in just 31 days.

Des Breakey has already proved himself as king of the kebab by eating 60 in a month.

But the 36-year-old now wants to beat his record from 2020.

During his previous ‘kebabathon’, Des wolfed down a whopping 120,000 calories with a chilli-soaked doner for lunch and dinner, all the while raising money for charity.

Now he’s set his sights on another challenge, by eating four kebabs a day, every day, throughout December. That will even see Des having a Christmas Day kebab.

Des, from Manchester, said: “I’m looking forward to it 100%. I get to eat my favourite food and I get to help people. My two favourite things. I’m looking forward to it.”

The engineer plans to start his days with a Shawarma in the morning before squeezing in three other kebabs throughout the day.

Des will take a sabbatical off work to make sure he has time to consume the vast amount of kebabs and expects to consume around 240,000 calories in total.

The father-of-two will even leave a review of each kebab on his Facebook page Manchester Donner Connoisseurs.

He added: “Any Shawarma place worth its salt opens at 10am, so I’ll be having one at 10ish.

“I visited 60 different gaffs during the last challenge, so I’m probably going to have revisit some during this challenge as I don’t think there’ll be enough shops.”

Des consumed around £800 worth of kebabs in November 2020, though he said most were donated by the shops who knew about his charitable efforts.

He plans to “mix the orders up” again by not always opting for a lamb donner and sometimes having a chicken or a mixed kebab.

Having raised £5,000 for charity last time, he hopes to raise £10,000 for a local children’s hospice this time. Visit here to donate to his fundraising efforts.

It comes after a woman devoured a breakfast containing 8,000 calories in just eight minutes at a café in Northern Ireland.

Leah Shutkever, who has broken 27 Guinness World Records, took on a new record-breaking eating challenge which most people would struggle to complete.

The competitive eater lined up her gut-busting morning meal of five eggs, five sausages, five rashers of bacon, five tomatoes, five hash browns and five black puddings.

Her meal was also topped-off with five pieces of toast, five portions of beans and five portions of mushrooms.

Leah, a professional competitive eater, demolished the mammoth breakfast in just eight minutes and two seconds.

This beat the Bicester Bean Café’s previous record of 12 minutes and 50 seconds, which was set just two weeks prior.

Leah told BelfastLive : “The previous record was so good it made me nervous! I really wanted to beat it.

“It was a difficult challenge for the time scale that I had to eat it in – it was a huge bowl and there were a lot of beans.”
