How long before you guys did popcorn???
Popcorn is/was my favorite "snack" and although I know I can't have it tomorrow I kind of feel like it is something to look forward to in the future.

You might check with your surgeon on this one, just because the kernel shells can be risky to you - they can get caught in the staple line is what I've been told. I miss popcorn too, it was a favorite of mine as well, but I really try to avoid it, even at 6 months out because I don't like to feed the carb monster. It's not something I can have just a little bit of without wanting more, an it can easily trigger more cravings for more carbs, which totally derails my weight loss. :-(

I started eating about five months out or so. Just beware! It is a slider food. I can eat lots of it at once and so I really have to be careful. I only allow myself to eat the 100 calorie bags.

I had popcorn at about 3 mos. out. I can't eat the amount I used to , which is a good thing. It still is satisfying.

I'm not too worried about the carb monster... In the past at least it hasn't been something I've battled. I will wait until I am told it is okay by the nut/dr but man o man, I'm ready!!

My last meal actually consisted of a bottle of moscato and a HUGE bowl of popcorn....
