That's debatable. Oatmeal is a wheat product and is an allergen. Not everyone has celiac or an overly sensitive system to gluten but gluten negatively effects everyone who eats it. I am not "gluten sensitive" but I took it out of my diet and I feel worlds better.
I will agree that it's not on the same line as a muffin though, especially if eaten in it's rawest form (i.e. no added sugar, etc.)
I'm not 100% familiar with the Gluten free diet, but if you say you don't have the intolerance and feel better by removing gluten i'm curious. Can you please expand on what your diet is like?
Let me start by saying I went to an allergist to be tested for gluten. Nothing. Nada, zip.
Second, When I initially changed my diet I was VERY skeptical about this whole gluten free thing. I decided to test it by ONLY removing gluten from my diet. I continued to eat normally. Fruity Pebbles has no gluten in it...I ate a ton of that when I first started
After about a week I noticed how much better I felt. Even with cutting just gluten out of my diet I lost 12lbs in a week.
Currently I am on a high fat/low carb diet. To quote my trainer:
I eat a high cholesterol diet. I overtrain daily. I squat and lunge with my knees going past my toes every rep. I stand on my head. I eat a high-fat/low carb diet. I haven't run long distance in 5 years, and I eat the entire egg including the yolk usually with red meat. According to popular belief, I am actually already dead.
