I think Fatdude is talking about something else, BioChemist... I bet he is considering doing the opposite...
I've heard stories about gluten-sensitive Americans who go to Europe on vacation, eat wheat there, only to discover much to their surprise that their normal symptoms do not manifest!
My mom is one - she went to Italy last Summer and decided to "cheat". She ate pasta and pizza, and felt great. She wonders if maybe the wheat in Europe has been less adulterated than American wheat, and therefore more easy on the system? I don't know.
FYI - I looked it up, and Europe is a major producer of wheat (mostly grown in France, Russia, Germany and Turkey) although they do import some from the US.
Yep I'm wondering about eating gluten in europe. Haven't eaten pure gluten in 6 years.. Although I have had a few beers without much trouble.
I would consider that.. But I'd be concerned about eating wheat together with sugar.. For me that creates food cravings, and I wouldn't want my trip to be all about food cravings and the overeating and bloating that usually follows : )
I'm not surprised.
Maybe part of this phenomena is due to the fact that European vacations usually end up involving a ton of walking around? Hours spent walking thru lovely streets and museums can increase metabolism and decrease gastrointestinal issues? Eh?
