    Corn doesn't digest so get ready for some good times in the bathroom. Hopefully they were extra buttered to help it come out easier.

    ah, one of my horrible addictive weakness next to Chapmans frozen yoghurt, caramel pecan. Orville Redenbacker's extra buttery, only 350 cals per bag, and I have two per movie. Yup, corn is not good when your trying to lose weight, it prevents fat loss but fuck, it is good with a good movie and just unamerican to eat rice cakes....keithicon_cool.gif

    I'm a popcorn addict as well. My suggestion would be to drop the microwave popcorn and go for stove-popped:

    http://www.popcornpopper.com/stovetop-poppers.html

    You can get away with using as little as 1/2 teaspoon of oil once the popper gets broken in, and it tastes infinitely better than microwaved. No kettle corn if you're concerned about it being healthy, though icon_wink.gif

    Popcorn is fairly high on the glycemic index, so probably not the best thing to eat late at night, but at least it's real food and not candy laden with HFCS.

    Not that I'm a good judge of a healthy diet...but I think the basic rule of eating certain foods that we enjoy in moderation is a good thing. Don't deprive yourself of treats every now and then... it actually lessens the craving.

    I'm a popcorn lover too.... I have started buying the Snack size bag(PopSecret) which is considered 100 calories, so I eat just one of those bad boys and I'm good, and feel less guilty. lol

    Popcorn itself, minus the butter or salt, is actually a good filler. Low in calories and no fat of its own. But, can you really have popcorn without flavoring?

    Try making your popcorn in the microwave with NO oil.

    Use a brown paper lunch bag, about 5-6 lb. size.

    Add a third of a cup of popcorn to the bag and fold it closed with about 1/2 inch folds, three or four of them.

    Place bag on microwave carousel and nuke on high until the pops are about three or four seconds apart.

    Dump in bowl and pig out!

    MUCH cheaper than buying prepackaged microwave popcorn and you can add whatever you like, or not.

    And where did you hear this nonsense? Corn does digest it is just the outer shell that doesn't. The outer shell is made of cellulose which is a hard compound that we can't digest. But the inside of the corn is easily digestible.

    I would call that a good filler for parcel packaging only. Besides, half the fun is knowing what ur eating isn't totally good for you. And DAVE, isn't moderation a dance from the early 60's?? .......Keithicon_cool.gif
