I can eat lot of popcorn! Why?



Recommended Posts

"Slider Food" is food that is easy to get in, compresses in the stomach, slides through fast to the small intestine and has no/little nutritional value. Take the bag of popcorn, grind it well in a food preocessor, add 1 TBS of Water and mix. That's really what you ate.

Now here's the question. WHY eat popcorn? If this is just an every once in a while treat, maybe rarely 1/2 cup. Don't push this. Folks who eat slider foods tend to be the folks that regain weight, IMHO.

popcorn is one of my weaknesses too. Fortunately I am a popcorn snob and really only like the movie popcorn or when I pop my own in a pot. My kids don't mind the microwave stuff so thats what I keep in the house. However when I take them to the movies (like when we go see Monsters Inc today), how can you possibly resist that smell? My solution is to buy the junior bag at cinemark, my fitness pal says without butter is 190 calories per bag. I eat one kernel at a time, protien shakes the rest of the day, and a mahi fillet for extra protien at dinner. When I treat myself I plan the rest of the day well. I love the fact that I am so concious, and present about what I am eating now. Its ok for a treat from time to time, as long as its not a regular thing.

I take a little plastic bowl in my purse when I go to the movies. I pack another snack, such as cut up fruit or veggies in a baggie in the bowl. At the movies, I share a popcorn, filling the little bowl with the part I will eat. And I eat the snack I brought too. I know you are not supposed to bring food, but they don't sell fruit and veggies!

Now I pack a ready to drink Protein shake in my purse when I go to the movies. Fill up on that and I won't be able to eat popcorn

That's what I did the last time I went.

Except that it wouldn't fit in my purse (I carry a clutch).

:lol:

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
