    Popcorn is the Best Snack Ever!!!

    * with a tiny amount of butter and/or olive oil, minimal salt. Air-popped or in small amount of olive oil.

    1. Tastes great. Especially if you get the kernels from an online specialty store. Those have a much "cornier" taste and are crispier than regular store bought.
    2. Very filling. On the Satiety (fullness) Index it's near the top of the list, 50% more filling than the equivalent amount in calories of white bread, 100% higher filling than potato chips, peanuts, candy bars, cake. Stretch out one large bowl (about 3 unpopped tablespoons) for all snacks during the day. You won't even be hungry for regular meals, so you can eat smaller regular meals.
    3. Awesome source of fiber. 20% RDA per tablespoon unpopped. Helps cleanse and rid your intestines of other crappy stuff you ate.
    4. Low calories considering how much you can eat and how filling it is.
    5. Dirt cheap price for regular store-bought and reasonable price for specialty.
    6. No sat. fat and miniscule other fats, unless you use butter/oil but even then it is low if you use only a small amount. Alternative is other seasonings like yeast, cinnamon or artificial butter (if you don't mind that).
    7. Sugar-free.
    8. No artificial ingredients.
    9. Good to satisfy carb/energy needs (most of my other meals are protein-heavy so I need the carbs for energy throughout the day)
    10. It's a whole grain. Studies have shown that whole grains are believed to significantly reduce risk of heart disease, diabetes and various cancers.
    11. GI glycemic index is avg, GL (glycemic load) index is low. Although popcorn is high carb it is much lower glycemic than many other high carb items such as potatoes, bread, rice, baked beans, crackers.

    I FREAKIN love the popcorn.

    Any popcorn lovers in the house or am I gonna get bashed?

    Yeah...I usually eat 5 to 10 cups a day. (2 to 4tbsp unpopped) I've got a hot air popper that works great. My bags of popcorn say that in 2tbsp, which yields about 5 cups popped, you get 100 calories with 6g of fiber. It is rather filling to me, and a good source of natural fiber. I use it as a snack to hold me over between breakfast and lunch.

    Popcorn (air popped) is great. I do mine with a shot or two of cooking spray and some butter buds. Yum. I have a weak spot for pretzels too. Mark

    I never knew popcorn was such a good snack - I always assumed it was terribly bad for you! I've got 2 big bottles of popping corn which have been sitting at the back of the pantry since I moved into this palce 8 months ago - so I cracked one open and am enjoying it as I type this

    yea i had 6 cups of popcorn tonight and thats only like 180 calories! i dont know about filling though... i did have the munchies and im never full when i got the munchies, but it just looks so little before popping i cant imagine it filling you up much
    Maybe it's hatred I spew, maybe it's food for the spirit
    Maybe it's beautiful music I made for you to just cherish
    But I'm debated disputed hated and viewed in America
    as a motherf**kin drug addict - like you didn't experiment?
    Now now, that's when you start to stare at who's in the mirror
    and see yourself as a kid again, and you get embarrased
    And I got nothin to do but make you look stupid as parents
    You f**kin do-gooders - too bad you couldn't do good at marriage!

    What about this?

    Try sprinkling/sifting chocolate protein powder over the popcorn. It is tasty, satisfies a sweet tooth, and adds the nutrient factor necessary for those lifting heavy for gains.

    Yes popcorn is a good snacks and eaten in most parts of the world. I like to buy good quality popcorns online from Tradus at affordable rates.

    I prefer dry fiber one original. You can eat it like popcorn, and only 120 cal for a full cup (it is tiny pieces and very filling) It has almost 30 grams of fiber per cup and fills you up, also a fun movie snack. I eat 1/2-1 cup every night while watching movies before I go to bed ^_^

    For those of you who really enjoy gourmet popcorn, check out popcornopolis. Probably my favorite popcorn I have ever had... NOT healthy though because of all the sugar and other crap they put on it but oh lord does it taste good

    Ummmm. Seems pretty useless to compare satiety to things that don't have any. Something multiplied by zero is still zero lol.

    I recently bought a bag of corn for self popping, pretty awesome. Calories really aren't bad. They have replaced pretzels as my go to when having a tasty beverage.
    MAY THE PROGRESS BE WITH YOU!
