  1. Did you know that McDonald's in Sweden do gluten-free bread with your burger? Essentially you can order (have to ask) a gluten-free burger, and they'll prepare it specially, seperately. They also have a good allergy list in their restaurants. Take a look at: http://www.celiaki.se/english.html I've visited the country twice now and always make a point of having a Super Size Me weekend. In any case, I've eaten fries and salads (always read the dressing though) in many countries, and often have their milkshakes, and apart from the normal adverse physical effects with eating McDs, I've had not coeliac related problems. Hope that helps!
  2. Hi All, Perhaps one for the International Forum, but did you know that McDonald's in Sweden do gluten-free bread with your burger? Essentially you can order (have to ask) a gluten-free burger, and they'll prepare it specially, seperately. They also have a good allergy list in their restaurants. Take a look at: http://www.celiaki.se/english.html For what it's worth, I've eaten McD's fries in the Netherlands, Germany, the UK, the USA and more, and I've never had any problems, having been diagnosed at age 1. But that probably doesn't help
  3. Hi all. First post! Living in the UK but travel a lot. When I travelled 'down under', this is the list I used to find restaurants and more: http://members.ozemail.com.au/~coeliac/dine.html Just wanted to make sure you all knew it existed. We used the list several times and made a trip to Ironbark pizzeria in Sydney, who do gluten-free pizza's (you have to ask though). They even serve gluten-free beer with it, but it wasn't to my taste. I made my whole group have their pizza's gluten-free so I could try them all. We had a fantastic time. I also found it incredibly easy (too easy...) to find health food shops or small bakeries which made gluten-free cakes and so forth. I always put on too much weight by the time I return home. I'll post some other things I discovered elsewhere in this forum, which aren't Australia related. But just so you know: you can get gluten-free McDonalds burgers in Sweden (gluten-free bun), some great gluten-free pancakes in the Netherlands, and Disney cater for gluten-free diets. In response to the last two posts: I've had Coeliacs all my life and with the abundance of gluten-free food in the UK supermarkets these days (I mean, honestly, chicken nuggets, fish fingers, English muffins etc. etc.) I have to make sure I don't buy too many things and keep eating. The best way to control my diet I've found, apart from the fact my income can't support a perpetual feeding frenzy, is to eat protein: meats, eggs, cheese, tofu, tuna etc. Or, if you like, eat limited carbohydrates, so small portions of rice, potato, breads and especially sugars. I suppose this is a weaker form of the Atkins diet. I've just found that the more carbs I eat, the more hungry I get. But I'm no dietician, so please do get professional advice! Hope this helps!
